We’re hosting The National Lottery’s Big Jubilee Street Party

On Thursday 12th May, the UK’s biggest stars will come together for the ultimate ‘street party’ in Manchester, to kick off the celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The National Lottery’s Big Jubilee Street Party will feature epic performances from the Kaiser Chiefs, Becky Hill, Steps, Tom Grennan, Heather Small, House Gospel Choir, Calum Scott, Nathan Dawe and Ella Henderson (and many more). Staged at Manchester’s AO Arena, it will be hosted by Jason Manford and Fleur East and will include exciting collaborations along with hits from some of the best names in music.

Thousands of free tickets^ (subject to a £2 booking fee per ticket + proof of purchase of a National Lottery product) were available for players. Please note that the tickets have now been claimed. For those who weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket, ITV and ITV Hub will be airing the special one-off show over the Jubilee weekend, with the exact date and time to be announced in the coming weeks.
