To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Deaffest 2012 will be celebrating in 1950’s style!

We’ve got flags and bunting, live rock and roll, stunning burlesque, even traditionally made jam and cakes!  So take a step back in time with us to that golden era and commemorate 60 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign.

Staff and participants will be putting on the vintage glamour (on Saturday you can get an alluring 50’s hairstyle from Deaf stylist Angelina), so join us in your best 50’s frocks girls (not forgetting that all-important frilly underskirt!) and guys – well, just do your best…

Of course it’s not compulsory to dress up but we hope you will.  We look forward to seeing you in all your 1950’s chic!

Diamond Jubilee facts:

The Queen came to the throne on 6 February 1952 and her coronation took place on 2 June 1953.  The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897.
