You are all invited to celebrate the Queen’s momentous Platinum Jubilee with a very special four-day event at Sacrewell, the popular heritage and visitor attraction just off the A47 and A1 near Peterborough. The proceedings will be starting on 2nd June, running until 5th June 2022 inviting visitors to share friendship, history and fun while exploring everything that Sacrewell has to offer from 9am – 4.30pm each day.

Highlights during the event will include an inflatable assault course, live music, children’s games, craft activities, a special Jubilee trail and a tractor display provided by Peterborough Farm Machinery Preservation Society from the 1950s to modern-day, including a display of vintage tools and signs from the start of the Queen's reign. In addition to these features, the wonderful Artisan Courtyard residents, featuring Stamford Heavenly Chocolates, Nene Valley Spirits, Hops & Hare, Whyte Wytch Artisan Cheese will be selling their unique gifts, food and drink throughout the event. You will be able to enjoy rural skills with our resident Blacksmith and Nene Coppicing and crafts and experience our artists Djibo Art and Street Arts Hire throughout the event.

Hopscotch, hoopla, and more themed games for children will be taking place, as well as craft activities in particular, Sacrewell will be inviting children to help create a Silhouette Window display in celebration of the occasion. 1642 Field Sports, onsite residents based behind the Mill Pond, will be offering archery and shooting, (additional fees and booking will apply).

Visitors will be able to pre-book a picnic hamper from Origin8, our friends in the café at Sacrewell and will be invited to take part in the Big Jubilee Lunch – an opportunity to share good food with family and friends in the themed outdoor picnic spaces.

History and education go hand in hand at Sacrewell and there will be plenty of chances to learn more about the Jubilee with pop-up displays in the 18th Century Water Mill and a Jubilee Trail full of fun facts to find while exploring the historic farmland of Sacrewell.
