Commonwealth Beacons



Malta

Europe and the Mediterranean

Nearly 2,000 events are being planned in the UK itself, with the Queen lighting a national beacon at 1245BST on Monday.

The other two Commonwealth countries in the region, Cyprus and Malta, also have events planned.

Jubilee celebrations in Malta will be spectacular as eight beacons will be lit in a chain from the Knights of Malta towers. Beacons have not been lit across all eight towers for nearly 200 years.

A laser light show will provide a finale to a fete at the Dhekelia garrison in Cyrpus.
