After 2 years of living through a global pandemic, a lot of things have been incredibly uncertain in the world, but it is paramount to hold on to our otherwise waning optimistic sides and take a brief look at the events set to occur throughout this year.

Platinum Jubilee Beginning this year, and with true British spirit, we can look forward to celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in February, marking the 70th anniversary of Elizabeth II’s ascension to the throne. The beloved monarch, at the astounding age of 95, is set to join the likes of Louis XIV of France, Prince Johann II of Liechtenstein, and King Bhumibol of Thailand after reigning for such an impressive amount of time.

After the incredibly wholesome celebrations between each community back in 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee, the British public may be set to make some more sunny and cheerful memories in honour of her majesty.

Winter Olympics Then we come to February 4th, in which everyone can enjoy the beginning of the Winter Olympics in Beijing that will continue until the 20th. The Olympic torch is set to return to China for the first time in 14 years, after hosting the prestigious competition back in 2008.

The official mascot for this year was revealed by the International Olympic Committee to be named ‘Bing Dwen Dwen’ and is characterized as a Panda bear as they are native to China and often considered their national animal.

This year, there is set to be a record 109 events in the seven sports of Skiing, Curling, Ice Hockey, Biathlon, Bobsledding, Skating, and Luge taking place in the capital as well as its neighbouring towns within the Hebei province.

Qatar World Cup Continuing in the sports world, football fans and the general public alike might appreciate the FIFA World Cup taking place in Qatar from November 21st to December 18th. There’s nothing better for the British population to keep up morale than another chance to collectively yell “Football’s coming home!” and who knows? It still might yet!
