A host of fun and creative activities and events are being held at Bradford libraries across the District to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Activities include tea and cake parties, art and craft sessions, rhyme and story time, a teddy bears picnic, a knit and natter session with karaoke, biscuit decoration, afternoon teas, book and film club evenings, a Children’s Royal Brunch and even a Queen’s Knickers Party.

All the events are free, although booking is essential for the Children’s Royal Brunch.

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive for Healthy People and Places said: “There are almost 30 events taking place in libraries across the district, so there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in the celebrations.”

City Library and Keighley Library will have on display local items of Royal interest in-cluding news cuttings, local photographs and memorabilia selected from the special col-lections in the Local Studies Libraries.

As well as events in libraries and community organised activities there are also events across the district organised by the council including the Bradford Great Jubilee Tea event in City Park on 2 June which include the lighting of a Jubilee Beacon and family events in five parks across the district.
