Celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in style this June

This year marks the Queen's Diamond Jubillee and Britons can celebrate the event by booking one of the many Lake District spa breaks available.

There are a wide number of options out there for people who wish to celebrate the occasion in the remarkable region, where beautiful hills and a warm atmosphere will greet visitors.

As well as making the most of the area's excellent attractions, guests can visit the Whitehaven Festival, where a variety of enticing events are scheduled to commemorate the Jubilee.

Scheduled from June 1st to June 3rd, a host of air shows, celebrity chefs, street theatre and markets will be brought to the area.

In addition, three concerts have been announced as part of the event, featuring some of the UK's brightest acts.

On the first day of the festival, Katherine Jenkins will perform what is sure to be an unforgettable set and the songstress is looking forward to the occasion.

Speaking to the Whitehaven News, she said: "I will never forget the last time I performed in Whitehaven as it was such a special and touching concert. I'm already looking forward to seeing everyone again."

Thirty-one-year-old Jenkins has made regular appearances on TV and has performed numerous concerts across the world.

She has even sung before the Queen at the Royal Albert Hall and was part of the Last Night of The Proms in Hyde Park.

The Saturday of the festival will see six bands arrive on stage to play a selection of number one hits from the 1970s, while the Sunday will include performances by The Charlatans and The Enemy.

These concerts are not the only draws of the Whitehaven Festival, as there are a number of celebrity chefs making appearances.

Among these are Ainsley Harriot, Jean Christophe Novelli and Sean Wilson, who will all be entertaining audiences at the event's cookery stage.
