 The Mall

Thousands of people are expected to gather along the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace, particularly on Monday and Tuesday when most of the festivities take place.

The palace concerts on Saturday and Monday, and the Thanksgiving service at St Paulís on Tuesday will all be relayed live on huge TV screens located all along the Mall and in neighbouring Green Park and St Jamesís Park.

Jubilee processions turned The Mall into a sea of colour
The Mall will be the main focus of celebrations on Tuesday when it is the route for the state procession to St Paulís at 1040 BST. In the afternoon Golden Jubilee pageants and parades will start in the Mall and then proceed through the streets to the south.

The festival procession will include a Notting Hill Carnival parade at 1.45pm, one thousand young people aged from 7-18 in the childrenís procession at 2.30pm and 5,000 gospel singers in the gospel choir pageant at 3pm. There will also be performances during the afternoon on stages in nearby Trafalgar Square.
