Jubilee Celebrations

Neath Diamond Jubilee Festival week was a great success!

Crowds descended on Victoria Gardens for ‘A Right Regal Party’ where the Festival Week celebrations kicked off. The afternoon concluded with the Olympic Torch coming to Neath and thousands lined the streets of Neath to see this momentous occasion. Neath Town Council hosted the grand finale of the week in Neath Castle with the Lighting of the Official Jubilee Beacon. The evening started with a lantern parade from Victoria Gardens (named after Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee) to the Neath Castle Gardens, where new flower beds and a commemorative plaque to Queen Elizabeth ll Diamond Jubilee was unveiled. The evening concluded with the lighting of the Beacon and a fantastic firework display. The whole event outside Buckingham Palace was shown live on a big screen at the Castle and over 1500 people turned up to join in the celebration. All the AV equipment was provided by Atlas AV and our customer was delighted with the results! For all our equipment hire services please contact us today.
