Jubilee jubilations!

We’re getting ready to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee a week today (June 2) and Lewis and Dave from our Maintenance team couldn’t wait to try out our regal throne selfie area!

Join us next Bank Holiday Thursday in the bunting-clad castle courtyard where entertainment will include Dippy the clown, patriotic face painting, a find the corgi trail around the 40-acre site and animal encounters with some of our smallest animals.

Plus, don’t forget to grab a picture on our golden thrones in our selfie prop area inside the castle, where you’ll also be able to see a display of memories and photos of the Queen’s visit to Dudley Castle in 1994.

Later that evening, we’ll be welcoming the Mayor of Dudley and other civic dignitaries who will be lighting a beacon on top of the 11th century scheduled monument at 9.45pm, as the Dudley borough joins in celebrations across the UK and Commonwealth to mark the monarch’s milestone, with the beacon able to be seen lit-up from the town centre.
