2012: plan ahead

Key events/news hooks coming up next year:

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – double bank hol


Euro 2012

Big theme is likely to be ‘Best of British’ again, but this time with more conviction, nostalgia, patriotism, etc. Expect more street parties – Royal Wedding was a chance for people to test the water. Bunting sellers are in the right business for 2012.


Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday – expect lots of events around the country and some more good TV from the BBC.

Mayan calendar ‘end of the world’ thing
