A DAY OF GAMES, stalls, magic and music will celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Clacton.
The Mad About Theatre Company and Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST) are working together to host the event at the West Greensward on Saturday, June 4.
Held between 10am and 3pm, the 1953 theme Platina Plaza event will include a theatre marquee with live entertainment compared by Christopher Frost – magician and entertainer.
There will also be performances from JA Performance Art, local magician Tony Malloy, and a drumming workshop.
Stalls running games will raise money for charities and The Mad Soul Food Tea Tent will raise money for its food project.
Indi Allen, event organiser, said: “Mad About Theatre have a unique opportunity to bring a free community theatre celebration to our community, who have lived through various stages of the Queens reign.
“The celebration will be in the spirit of a Platinum event, showcasing the strength, durability and unity of the community.
“It’s going to be 1950s theme and we’re hoping the stallholders will dress up for the occasion.
“There will a marquee and stage to create a mini theatre with 150 seats.
“And a few classic vehicles to add to the theme.”
She added: “The event gives many charities and community organisations a showcase for their work.
“It will bring volunteers of all ages together to create a community day.
