Oliver Dowden – 2020 Comments on Extra Bank Holiday in 2022

The comments made by Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 12 November 2020.

Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will be a truly historic moment – and one that deserves a celebration to remember.

We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend, when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendour with cutting edge art and technology. It will bring the entire nation and the Commonwealth together in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s reign.
