MCC hosts celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Oystermouth Castle live on BBC One

Oystermouth Castle was the amazing backdrop for last night’s beacon lighting event in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Mumbles Community Council were delighted to work with the BBC to broadcast the event live on BBC1 just before the lighting of the principal beacon at Buckingham Palace. Gethin Jones and Bonnie Tyler were our wonderful hosts and entertainment was provided by The Battling Gwerin y Gwyr, City of Swansea Pipe Band and Friends of Oystermouth Castle. Our thanks also to EPM Marketing for their support throughout.
