The rest of the public will be invited to join in the fun after 2pm where they can donate to help the homeless.

People will be able to enjoy a a performance from the AC30 Rocksteady Band in the marquee with other events made possible by New Roots, Coventry and Warwickshire

Chamber of Commerce and a private donation from Mr and Mrs Hudson.

Over in Birmingham, Platinum Jubilee Celebration organisers have worked with Let’s

Feed Brum, Midland Langar Seva Society (MLSS) and the Sikh community to provide food across the city.

People wanting to hold community parties will be able to download a Big Lunch pack with tips, ideas and guidance from the West Midlands Lieutenancy website.

West Midlands Lord Lieutenant, John Crabtree OBE said: “The Queen has been a fantastic, loyal servant supporting our country for over 75 years.

“People in The West Midlands talk about their positive memories of the Silver Jubilee and historic events over the years.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate Her dedication and efforts for us and a chance to get together with people we might not know and form connections.”
