How WTM are celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

This year marks the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne, and we’ve got a number of things lined up for celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee. While the official celebrations will take place across the long weekend of 2-5 June, WTM have organised events across all their venues spanning the course of a month.

Firstly, we’ve got our double film screening of Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts

What can we expect? This documentary chronicles the reign of the Queen with extraordinary archival footage. From the director of Notting Hill and The Duke comes a nostalgic, uplifting, and modern chronicle of the extraordinary 70-year reign of Her Majesty the Queen, the longest-living and longest-reigning British monarch, and longest-serving female head of state in history.

Up next, our much-anticipated performance of The Queen’s Knickers

What can we expect? This new musical adaptation of the children’s book is guaranteed to provide fresh fun for all the family. It’s a busy year for the Queen – she has lots of important events to attend. But disaster has struck the palace as Her Majesty’s knickers have been nicked – call the royal guard! Meanwhile, a little girl is wondering what knickers Her Majesty will choose to wear on a school visit! Will they be her ‘at home’ knickers – adorned with corgis – or her ‘garden party’ knickers, or perhaps her woolly Balmoral ones…? This production promises a regal children’s musical full of songs, silliness and a corgi or two!

Finally, we have workshop for lovers of arts and crafts: Regal Ribbons
