There is a long and unbroken tradition in our country of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of Beacons whether they be on the top of mountains, churches, castle battlements, town and village greens, country parks, estates and farms and along the beaches surrounding our shores. In 1897, Beacons were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. In 1977 and 2002 Beacons were also lit to celebrate the Silver and Golden Jubilees of The Queen.

Spread the light
In 2012 Premier in partnership with The Diocese of London will launch a project aimed at getting young people active in their communities and reaching out to people in need. We are inviting young people to join the '2012' group with Premier providing media resources and events that aim to equip and inspire a generation to a greater level of social involvement, with the aim being to generate a wave of activity across the country. From every Church Beacon purchased, £30 will be given to the '2012' project to create the resources, hold events and coordinate teams.
