The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee assembly on the years 1952 – 2022 is an adaptation of my History of Rock n Roll assembly. This covers world events but with a musical twist (up to 35 suggested songs!)
This is one of three scripts now available on the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The other two are:
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee assembly – about the Queen and her life, family, achievements etc.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee assembly on the English Monarchy – this being a quick gallop from Alfred to our present queen!
Reading time: about 15 minutes. This does not include any music and as the ‘list’ is largely down to teacher discretion, this could vary greatly – from 15 to 60 minutes!
Cast of 30 plus (could easily be doubled!)
Music 20 God Save the Queen – Sex Pistols
(Queen sits in state of total shock)
(Narrator rushes over to queen and offers her handkerchief to mop her brow)
Queen: Well! I’m not often lost for words but ….
Narrator: (Effusively) I’m so sorry, Your Majesty! I had no idea this punk band were performing here today! Whatever next!
Music 21 Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
Narrator: Ah! Queen!
Narrator: No, that’s the name of the band, Your Majesty!
Queen: What? Named after me? Ah, splendid! (Looks quizzically at Freddie Mercury’s black leather trousers) Mmm. Not quite sure about the trousers ..
Music 22 Baggy Trousers – Madness
Queen: Ah! That’s better! Now. How about a few more current events. Where were we? Ah yes! The seventies!
(Enter 1970s children, holding up cards)
Child 1: 1971: Decimal currency is introduced in Britain.
Cast: (Together) Phew! Maths lessons now much easier!
Child 1 (1971 continued): And Soviet Union launches first space station, Salyut 1.
Child 2: 1973: Coal miners strike in Britain. State of emergency and 3 day working week are proclaimed.
