Incorporated by Royal Charter
Patron: Her Majesty The Queen
Communities Secretary Greg Clark has today (15 January 2016) urged councils and local people to get behind new projects set up to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
The Queen turns 90 on 21 April this year and national commemorations will centre on her official birthday weekend in June with a mass street party on the Mall called The Patron’s Lunch, a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral and the traditional Trooping the Colour ceremony.
To help people set up their own Patron’s Lunches and street parties across the country the government has today revised and re-launched its street party guidance.
Busting popular myths and providing a handy checklist for what is really needed, the guidance offers practical advice to anyone planning their own street party.
This includes a simple form people can use to let their local council know about their plans and information on how to apply for a road closure as well as information on playing music, insurance and fund raising.
