Your memories of how the district celebrated the Queen’s silver jubilee in 1977

On June 6 and 7, 1977, more than one million people lined the streets of London to watch the Royal Family in procession to St Paul’s cathedral, while millions more watched on TV and held street parties across the country.
In Harrogate there were street parties, galas and even a visit from the Queen herself, who attended the Great Yorkshire Show.
