On Friday 3rd June, a Service of Thanksgiving will be held at St Paul's Cathedral to honour the Queen's reign. Great Paul, the largest church bell in the UK, will be rung for the Service. The bell was made in 1882 but fell silent in the 1970s due to a broken mechanism. It was restored in 2021 and has been rung on 8 occasions since, but this is the first royal occasion it will be rung for. On Saturday 4th June, The Derby at Epsom Downs will take place, which Her Majesty The Queen and the Members of the Royal Family will attend.
