3rd May 2022

Her Majesty the Queen is the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee and you can join the Arts Service festivities at Flowerfield Arts Centre, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre and in Ballycastle and Ballymoney!

To complement the national celebration, there's something for everyone, from floristry workshops Fit for a Queen to Tiny Tot Royal Fairy-tales, to film screenings and community bunting sessions.

Children and young people will have the opportunity to attend workshops across both venues and in Sheskburn House, Ballycastle and Ballymoney Town Hall, to create floral crowns and regal headbands, craft a clay castle money box, and make their own Royal rod puppets.

At Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre there will also be a screening of family movie, The Queen’s Corgi and younger children are invited to attend a Royal fairy-tale storytime (fairy-tale fancy dress is strongly encouraged). Flowerfield will host a screening of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s extremely popular musical fantasy, Encanto.

As well as these family friend screenings there will also be the opportunity to see Spencer (2021) starring Kristen Stewart, and the riveting documentary Elizabeth II: A Portrait in Parts at both Flowerfield and Roe Valley Arts Centre and The Queen (2006) starring Helen Mirren, at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre.

A Jubliee workshop programme for adults will take place at both art venues and in other venues across the Borough, including floristry, glassmaking, silversmith jewellery workshops and needle felting workshops, all with a royal twist. Participants are invited to come along and create commemorative pieces of art inspired by Her Majesty’s reign. Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre will also host a reflective Creative Writing course, 'Decades', to lead participants back through the past decades supporting them in creating a final written piece. All workshops and courses are suitable for participants of all levels.

There are a number of community events planned to bring the people of the Borough together for this landmark celebration including, at Flowerfield, a spectacular outdoor projection of key moments in the life of Queen Elizabeth II, and Vintage Tea dances for local senior citizen groups at both Flowerfield and Roe Valley Arts Centre.

Residents of the Borough of all ages are also invited to take part in the Big Community Bunting Stitch-up, a series of free drop-in bunting making workshops. These workshops are for all levels of experience and skill and participants can try a range of different techniques from block printing to stencilling, applique, mixed media as well as sewing. These drop-in sessions will begin in Flowerfield Arts Centre, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre and Ballymoney Town Hall.
