About the event
On Saturday 24 September 2022, the Jubilee Reflections Flotilla will mark the River Thames’ celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Reflections will be an opportunity for the River Thames’ community and its stakeholders to come together to capture the enchantment of the night river, creating reflections as the boats glide peacefully by – allowing those viewing to remember the past and think to the future, whilst reflecting on Her Majesty’s reign and celebrate such a marvellous achievement.
At dusk an illuminated flotilla of invited vessels, both manpowered and motorised, will parade down through central London from Chelsea to Tower Bridge. All craft will be decorated in white lights which will reflect on the water’s surface, creating a river of light. With this being the River Thames’ first night-time flotilla, the event will merge light and dark, working in harmony and unison with the superb Illuminated River display, as well as with the lit buildings and structures bordering the banks of the Thames.
The event will raise funds for the RNLI, supporting their construction of a new lifeboat station at Waterloo Bridge. Promoted as part of Totally Thames 2022, it is being created by Thames Alive who played a central role in the delivery of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012.
London’s River Thames has played an important role in many celebrations of Royal and State occasions over the centuries, and this memorable event will continue this age-old tradition.
