Things to do for
Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend
2022 will mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee – a celebration of 70 year’s service as Britain's monarch. This will become the first British royal in history to reach this milestone. It is quite the occasion, and to celebrate our beloved Queen has given us all a 4-day weekend – and extended the timings of the pub. That’s why we love her.
Something like this doesn’t happen often so we take any opportunity to grasp these 2 days off and get our diaries booked up to the max. Here’s a few little things to try and do to make sure you have the best long bank holiday weekend.
The Jubilee Trifle
You may have already seen this circulating the internet, Mary Berry has done it again and judged the ultimate pudding for the Jubilee. The lemon swiss roll and amaretti trifle looks impressive and alongside the other Royally inspired recipes (Victoria sponge cake & coronation chicken) will follow in their legacies and be used for the next 50-100 years.
Its got to be worth a try right! Here’s the recipe: BBC Good Food - Jubilee Trifle

Visit the Queen
As much as we wouldn’t want to admit it, we would love to have two birthdays. The Queens second birthday falls on the second Saturday in June and on 2nd June at Buckingham Palace the annual Queens Birthday Parade will take place. More than 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will come down together to celebrate the Queen. The weather should be good, so why not get involved in all the festivities and enjoy the sun in true British fashion.
Cocktails on Tap
There’s no doubt if the weather is shining down on us we are going to have a cheeky little drink. Here at Truly we are a sucker for a cocktail but know how much faff they can be to make just to drink it down in 3 minutes! Giraffe cocktails make batch cocktails to make life a little easier an do all the favourites pornstar martinis, espresso martini, strawberry daquiri, mojito, cosmo and gin garden. If you’re planning on doing a big BBQ or hosting over the weekend, we can’t think of a better way to enjoy a cocktail again and again. If you’re in need of beautiful glassware to put in it, you know where to find us!
To finish off, we just want to make sure you have everything that you’ll need for the ultimate weekend. Picnic with the kids, hosting friends and family, soaking up the sunshine in the garden and even what to wear here’s a little inspiration:
