Wycombe Museum is excited to announce we have been awarded funding from the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund by Heart of Bucks – ensuring that creativity plays an important role in local community celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Let’s Create Jubilee Fund will ensure that thousands of people from communities all across England will have the opportunity to take part in exciting creative events – all in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee. From puppetry and story creation, through to making crowns, carnival and art trails, there will be a huge range of exciting activities for people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in.
We will be exploring local people’s stories so we really understand Your Jubilee. The project will involve an exhibition connecting with all of our local community, the exhibition Your Jubilee (running 11th May – 11th September), reminiscence, and activity trail in collaboration with Wycombe Library, and free community event days.
Made possible thanks to National Lottery players and administered by UK Community Foundations on behalf of the Arts Council, the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund will support a huge range of projects throughout England. 44 community foundations have been awarding grants across the country.
