Howard Burrell, Stevenage Borough Council's Executive Member for Children and Young People, Culture, Sport and Leisure, said: "It's a great honour for Stevenage to be hosting one of the celebratory beacons, and I hope lots of Stevenage people will come and share this unique experience on 4 June.

The lighting of the Jubilee beacon really is a historic event and, with the firework display to enjoy as well, it promises to be a very special evening."
