So let’s ensure we make the most of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this weekend with an extended Bank Holiday stretching from Thursday to Sunday.

Thousands of us left Wembley deflated and dejected after the Stags’ sorry defeat against Port Vale in the play-offs final.

But the jubilee weekend gives us the chance to revive our spirits, and we have pieced together a guide to some of the events taking place in the Mansfield and Ashfield area, and beyond.

From tea parties to picnics, from dance displays to exhibitions, it’s all happening during half-term week as we mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

Before you set off, please visit the individual websites of the venues to check opening times and admission prices.

Have a great weekend!
