Alnwick Golden Jubilee Celebrations 1887

As we have marked two major royal celebrations recently, with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations for the reign of Elizabeth II in June 2022 and the coronation of King Charles III in May 2023, it is interesting to look at how such occasions were marked in Alnwick and the surrounding area in the past.

The  story of how the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria was celebrated in the town is to be found in our archives.
