Jubilee celebrations are well underway across the country, and Edinburgh is no exception. The City of Edinburgh Council has spent roughly £30,000 on celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, with £10,000 going to the council's own events and £20,000 to community groups throughout Edinburgh. The council has also received 32 street party applications ahead of the extended bank holiday weekend.

Although some are being held in parks, those held on roads need Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTRO) to be granted by roads officers and will be closed to traffic. The majority of these parties are taking place on Sunday June 5th.

Here are all the roads closed in Edinburgh over the bank holiday weekend for Jubilee street parties.

In addition, on Sunday June 5th in Princes Street Gardens – where 35,000 flowers and plants have been used to create a ‘floral clock’ in honour of Her Majesty’s record time on the throne – festivities will be in full swing with live music from the Royal Marine Pipe Band, local act Love Music Community Choir and an Edinburgh Festival Carnival parade. The council is urging people to ‘dust off their best picnic blanket’ for the free event, which will also see the Platinum Jubilee Pageant broadcast live from London shown on big screen in the gardens.

“The Platinum Jubilee is a truly historic event and it was important to find a fitting tribute here in the Capital for those who wish to come together and celebrate the occasion,” said Robert Aldridge, Lord Provost of Edinburgh City Council. “In the tradition of Jubilee street parties our big picnic in the gardens invites citizens to come together to enjoy some fantastic local entertainment and music. Watching the celebrations on the big screen will be a great way for people to be involved and soak up the atmosphere of this extraordinary day.”
