Winchester is proud to be marking The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the run up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games with a series of special events showcasing everything that makes Britain great. Between 25 May and 26 July 2012 the whole district will be marking the occasion in a Best of British Festival.

During the festival visitors to King Alfred's ancient capital can catch an array of events starring some of the greatest names in British theatre, broadcasting, literature, politics and the military. There will be music, dancing, street parties, children's activities and a series of ‘foodie’ events and promotions celebrating local produce.
