NOW CLOSED – JUBILEE TIMED RELEASE from Doug Hyde

23/05/2022

In celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the nation’s best loved artist has released a spectacular commemorative piece showing some of his best loved characters enjoying a Jubilee jamboree of their own.  

Garden Party is a timed edition with a buying window of one week only.

All orders must be received by midnight on Monday 30th May when the edition will be closed. 

The edition size will be determined by the number of orders taken during this period, so place your order today to be a part of something very special.

Words from Doug:
Over the years I have celebrated various Royal Jubilee events with family, friends and neighbours. They bring communities together in a wonderful way – in 1977 I  remember having a street party where all of the tables were put together in the middle of the road, and the whole street sat out in the sunshine enjoying the day. 45 years later, we live somewhere very different but are intending to create a similar experience on our village green.

Up and down the country this experience will be shared by millions. When I was younger the best part about these days was the food – home-made trifle, cakes and a plate piled high with biscuits. As an adult that extra day off work makes it something to look forward to even more!
 
When considering my approach to this celebration artwork, I simply thought of these memories of sharing a great day in the sun with others. The queen is a remarkable person and has earned well deserved respect and admiration all over the world. She is a figurehead  we can all be very proud of, and royalist or republican, most people would acknowledge that she has given her country outstanding service.
 
So this June, I hope you are all able to enjoy the day and celebrate on your street, in your garden, at the park or on your local village green with your neighbours, friends and family. Bake a cake, hang out the bunting and raise a glass (or more likely a paper cup!) to Her Majesty the Queen!
