Buckingham Palace has revealed the line-up of events planned to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

A whole host of celebrations have been planned to mark the occasion, including a concert with some of the world's biggest stars and a chance to see the Queen's homes up close.

The Platinum Jubilee celebrates the Queen being on the throne for 70 years as she was coronated on June 2, 1953.

An extra bank holiday has been added to the UK's calendar on Friday June 3 so that people can take time to enjoy festivities.

Here are all the events taking place for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee:

The competition is inviting members of the public to create a dish to dedicate to the Queen’s reign.

More than 500 horses and 1,000 performers will take part in a 90-minute show taking the Windsor Castle audience through history right from Elizabeth I to present day.

The colour will be trooped on Horse Guards Parade by the 1st Battalion, Irish Guards and over 1,200 officers and soldiers from the Household Division who will put on a display.

Sandringham and Balmoral will also be open for residents and visitors to enjoy the celebrations across the Bank Holiday.

The UK will join the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories to light a beacon to mark the Jubilee.

The Principal Beacon will also be lit in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

The Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Some of the world’s greatest entertainers are billed to perform at the concert at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the most significant moments from the Queen’s reign.

Street parties are being planned across the UK and neighbours are expected to join together for food and fun to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

It will mark the end of the Bank Holiday.

Performers will come together in London to tell the story of the Queen’s reign through a pageant that will include a “River of Hope” section made up of 200 silk flags that will make its way through The Mall, appearing like a moving river.

Three displays marking the Queen’s accession to the throne, the Coronation and Jubilees will be put on at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
