Our Big Picture was awarded funding from the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund by Lincolnshire Community Foundation – ensuring that creativity played an important role in local community celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Our Big Picture worked in partnership with The Laceby Community Collective and Laceby Parish Council to deliver the project.

The activity included community bunting making sessions – with bunting made from historic and present-day photographic images and hands prints from children in foundation and year one from Stanford School, Laceby.

On the afternoon and evening of Thursday 2nd June at Butt Lane playing field, the community were invited to  the ‘Firing up your Jubilee’ event that included food, music, village games, crown and flag making, stilt walking, bubbles, cake competition, circus skills and a fire performance and finished off with the lighting of the beacon.

It was a great success with over 1700 people attending. The local community came together to celebrate the Jubilee weekend but importantly the village community spirit!
