StoneX Stadium becomes a Beacon for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations
As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Saracens, in partnership with our partners Version2 Lights, will be lighting a special Jubilee Beacon at StoneX Stadium on Thursday 2nd June.
The Jubilee Beacon is one of the official events of the Platinum Jubilee in 2022, providing an opportunity to recognise and celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years as Sovereign. At 9.45pm on Thursday 2nd June Cllr Barry Rawlings, Leader of Barnet Council, will officially light the StoneX Stadium Beacon which will be seen for many miles around.
Saracens Chief Community Officer, Gordon Banks said, “The Queen's Platinum Jubilee is a historic milestone and we wanted to play our part in helping the London Borough of Barnet recognise and celebrate the occasion. The lighting of beacons has become a symbol of community unity and togetherness which is at the heart of Saracens so this felt like an appropriate way for us to mark this unique landmark. With our partners Version2 Lights, we plan to create a non-traditional and unique Jubilee Beacon that will be seen and enjoyed by people for miles around.”
Version 2 Managing Director, Nick Edwards said, “We're excited to be presenting a unique twist to the traditional Jubilee Beacon concept. Our hope is that by creating a contemporary light installation at StoneX Stadium, the wider community will be able to enjoy the Saracens beacon from afar. The Jubilee is a time for togetherness and we're delighted to come together with Saracens with this community project".
We would encourage all residents within the surrounding community to look up into the sky for the StoneX Stadium Beacon between 9.45pm and 10.30pm on Thursday 2nd June.
