Jubilee Weekend at the Southbank CentreAppropriately, the Jubilee Gardens reopen on the Diamond Jubilee weekend, 2nd to 5th June seems a good time revisit the garden which was originally created in 1977 to celebrate The Queen's Silver Jubilee. The Southbank Centre gives plenty more reasons to visit with a variety of Jubilee themed activities and events, many of which are free. Diamond Decades on 2 June, for example, gives visitors a chance to dance to favourite hits from the last 60 years, for free. There's free crafting where you get to make a flower or flag to decorate a giant corgi sculpture that will take over The Clore Ballroom (5 June), and their regular ballroom dancing event gets a patriotic twist on Monday 3 June with Strictly Jubilee Ballroom where visitors are invited to dress in red, white and blue. The weekend also features a special homage to Frank Sinatra, with Paul Holgate and his band playing Sinatra songs 60 years after the exact date of his televised Royal Festival Hall show as part his 1962 world tour.
