IT’S GOOD news for Brits as pubs, bars and clubs could remain open into the early hours of the morning to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over a bank holiday weekend next year.
Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, wants to extend licensing hours from 11pm to 1am from Thursday 2 June to Saturday 4 June over the extended bank holiday weekend.
To get us excited for the Platinum Jubilee, the Royal Mint has designed two new coins in celebration of the monarch’s 70th year on the throne.
The two new coins to honour the event include a 50p coin and a £5 crown, with the 50p coin featuring a portrait of the Queen designed by the artist Jody Clark.
Designed by John Bergdhal, the £5 crown features a regal design centralised by the quartered shield of the Royal Arms.
