Lighting Up the Wall


On Thursday 2nd June, to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a chain of lanterns will be lit along the length of Hadrian’s Wall celebrating not only 70 years on the throne but also the 1900th birthday of the Wall! The lighting of Hadrian’s Wall’s beacons at 21.45 will follow an afternoon of local activities, and will take place against the backdrop of this stunning UNESCO World Heritage site as the Northumberland pipers play, marking the finale of country wide celebrations.
