Plans unveiled for Royal Wedding Party

BSTC - 17th February 2011

Plans for a community party in Bradley Stoke have been revealed following a meeting of the council's Leisure Youth and Amenities (LYA) Committee on Monday. The event, which will take place, on Friday 29th April to coincide with the wedding of HRH Prince William of Wales to Miss Kate Middleton, is being jointly organised by Friends of Jubilee Green, event managers Re-energize and Bradley Stoke Town Council.

The centerpiece of the event, at the Town's Jubilee Centre complex, will be 14'x10' outdoor big screen TV showing live coverage of the wedding, with a variety of catering units on hand to feed the crowd as well as a beer tent for that celebratory tipple. Children's entertainment will be provided with a puppet show before the wedding and party activities on the green in the afternoon.

A wedding reception will also be held inside the Jubilee Centre during the afternoon complete with disco and a prince and princess fancy dress competition for local children.

Chair of Friends of Jubilee Green Michelle Dent said: "We are delighted to be involved in the organisation of this event, I remember the fun we had at a street party for Charles and Dianaís wedding when I was younger and itíll be great to a see a new generation celebrating as a community." adding "Our vision for the Jubilee Green has always been that it brings the community together and events such as this are a big part of that".

Chair of the LYA Committee, Cllr Robert Jones, meanwhile explained why the council are backing the project. Saying "A big royal wedding is one of those 'where were you when' occasions and we want to bring the community together for the celebration. For the children I'm sure it'll be something they'll remember all their lives, while older residents will no doubt recall happy memories from similar events of the past"

Town Mayor, Cllr Ben Walker, who has been asked to open the event at 10am on the day added: "Not only is this event a chance to celebrate in a truly British fashion, it will also be a showcase for the local groups in attendance and for the Jubilee Green itself."
