THE QUEEN visited landmarks in Seer Green to celebrate getting Lottery funding for its music festival this weekend.

Villagers reported spotting the Queen in the Jolly Cricketers pub, the post office and Seer Green School - with her even stopping off for a gin and tonic.

The special guest visited local shops and landmarks as part of the final count down to the village’s Jubilee celebrations which begin at the weekend.

Seer Green and Jordans are celebrating the Diamond Jubilee with a huge festival of local music on Sunday May 27.

The organisers won lottery funding for the event, to help bring ticket costs down.

The line up of 21 acts from Seer Green and Jordans includes local schools and adult choirs, as well as music ranging from folk to classical to rock.

There will be a hog roast, barbecue and licensed bar.

Jane Smith from the Seer Green and Jordans Community Trust said: “We wanted to do something extra special to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and with so much musical talent at our fingertips a music festival was the obvious choice. We’ve been careful to ensure that the day is as family friendly as possible as we want everyone to be able to enjoy what promises to be an amazing afternoon of music and entertainment.

“The Lottery Funding has been crucial in helping to cover all the inevitable costs of such an ambitious event and has enabled us to keep ticket prices relatively low which we hope will encourage a high attendance.

“All money raised from the event will benefit both village communities.”

The Diamond Jubilee Music Festival runs from 1pm to 9pm in Seer Green School grounds and the Jubilee Hall.

Tickets are available from, pubs and shops in Seer Green and Jordans or on the door.
