To celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking her 70th year in service, Jubilee Folk, a new musical theatre production created by Rebecca Ross-Williams Creative Director at Liverpool Lighthouse and supported by Arts Council England and Culture Liverpool will be touring 70 streets in Anfield, North Liverpool.

Jubilee Folk are performing in streets, school playgrounds and care home gardens until June 3rd. The performers are hoping to reach into the community and especially those who have sheltered during the Covid-19 pandemic, to bring communal joy and laughter and are set to perform to thousands of people.

The show involves 3 actors who play Ralph and Rodger the Queens Guards, an acrobatic Chinese Lion Dance Troupe, China Spirit who play the Queen’s corgi called Muick, the Queen’s remaining Corgi’s name and her dog trainer Margarita.

Jubilee Folk tells the story of The Queen who has sent her corgi, guards and dog trainer to Liverpool as her wish for the Jubilee is for communities to come together and to find strength, share love and to have hope and dreams. The characters, through music, magic tricks and fun involve the audience in 3 tests to see if Liverpool can win the royal prize of wealth and a royal bucket of cash for demonstrating their qualities of strength over the years, love which they share and future dreams and aspirations.

As a special celebration over the Jubilee bank holiday there is a Community Jubilee Celebration in Anfield at Liverpool Lighthouse on June 2nd, starting at midday with a family fun day where everyone is welcome.  The Lord Lieutenant will officially open the celebration at 2pm with a performance of the Jubilee Folk followed by a line-up of local artists and community groups.

Liverpool Lighthouse took musical theatre performance to over 40 people’s doorsteps reaching over 250 people last year during Covid restrictions which was incredibly popular.
