Creating the Ultimate Vegan Platinum Jubilee Bash

Queens Jubilee Blog Banner

Garden party? Picnic? Street party? Or a quiet gathering in the comfort of your living room? However you decide to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee this June, we have some easy and exciting ideas for your ultimate vegan Jubilee buffet.

A first of its kind Royal Platinum Jubilee

As of June 2022, Her Majesty The Queen, will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years on the throne.  There are currently over 4,000 events registered at the dedicated governmental Jubilee webpage, which calls for people far and wide to join the celebrations taking place from 2nd to 5th June.

Eden Project Communities calls for a Big Jubilee Lunch across the nation as part of the official celebrations for HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The initiative is centred around fostering community spirit, encouraging people to share food with their neighbours in a bid to come together. It is also a chance for community groups, charities, schools and housing associations to get on the public radar.

Sustainable Jubilee Party choices

HM The Queen and the Royal Family have curated a public image that shows support for a more sustainable future and green causes such as The Queen’s Green Canopy, an initiative encouraging the public to plant trees in honour of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

In line with this, many councils and government agencies have shared ‘green’ tips on making this celebration more earth friendly. Top tips include the elimination of single-use plastic (e.g., swap to wood, paper and bamboo cutlery and plates), and recycling and disposing of foods. Elsewhere, purchasing drinks in cans as opposed to plastic is encouraged, and even asking guests to attend with their own reusable cups. Using alternatives or omitting plastic straws is another easy way to help loosen the strain on our environment without missing out on the Platinum Jubilee fun. Find out more about running a sustainable Jubilee event in this document by the HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant.
