Aside from the tree planting commemoration, launched by Queen's Green Canopy (QGC) on The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the Department for Education is planning to commission a Queen's Platinum Jubilee commemorative book. This announcement is made on the 24th May (coincidentally on Queen's Victoria's birthday).

The purpose of this early engagement notice is to notify the market of the Department for Education's (DfE) intention to undertake a procurement exercise to produce a Queen's Platinum Jubilee commemorative book for primary school children, for completion and delivery to schools by May 2022. As part of this, or as a separate contract, we also want to commission development of teaching resources for primary and secondary school teachers to assist them in delivering a lesson and/or assembly on the Queen and her reign in the run-up to Jubilee celebrations.

This contracts Finder Future Opportunity Notice is linked to an Early Supplier Engagement Event and a PIN without call for competition.

The contractor can be either one organisation, or a group of economic operators. We are keen to receive feedback from suppliers on our proposal and therefore we will be hosting a market engagement webinar.

A market engagement webinar will be hosted by the DfE on Friday 28th of May, 2021 from 10-11am. Details of this webinar will be sent to interested parties following registration.

Bidders who are not already registered on the portal can register here:

When registered and signed in to Jaggaer you will need to express an interest in the opportunity to be able to access all relevant documentation, including the webinar pack.

For information: Attendance at the market engagement events is not a pre-requisite for being able to submit a tender against this opportunity. If you are unable to attend the market engagement events, the information pack, along with slides and Q&A will be made available.

If you would like to attend the market engagement webinar on 28th May 2021, please express your interest by no later than 0900 on 28th May 2021.

For any assistance required in registering please contact the Jaggaer helpdesk:

I live so far away... I wish I had the chance to participate in the jubilee events. Hopefully, I'll be able to travel to the UK.

Sounds good, a bit of a mixture of the last two Jubilee events (without River Pageant! hehe).

Assuming Australia's borders are open and we are able to travel by then (not a given as our Treasurer said, a few weeks ago 'mid-2022' which could be July or even August) I should be there. I should be there now but everything been put back to next year.

Let's hope the service at St Paul's forms part of a great big coach procession to & from BP like in 2002.

Might as well pull out all the stops.

Tatler has released an article revealing more details on the Platinum Jubilee with "all-singing, all-dancing pageant that promises to be the definitive celebration, ‘a sensory explosion’".

Inside the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee pageant, as grand plans are unveiled featuring ‘misbehaving corgis’ et al
Ambition for the upcoming event, celebrating 70 years of Her Majesty’s reign, has ‘never been higher’ and the occasion will be part-ceremonial pageant, part all-singing, all-dancing carnival
