Royal Wedding Street Party!

It won´t just be a Big Day for William and Kate? Our very own Manchester´s Northern Quarter is also preparing for a HUGE celebration!

That´s right, on Friday 29th April the Northern Quarter will be THE place to be for all those who want to celebrate the Royal Wedding the good old fashioned way!

The response to the event has already been huge?The Northern Quarter Street Party Facebook page now has over 2,000 members and their wall is jam-packed full of people wanting to be involved in the event!

So, as William and Kate tie the knot, around 2000 people will dress in their best 1940s style get-up, to dance under the best Union Jack bunting and sample special punch!

Edge Street and sections of Hare Street and Oak Street will be shut off to traffic and transformed into a 1940s wonderland?. >

The Norther Quarter Street Party will be jam-packed with activites, craft workshops, treasure hunts, jam-making, tombola, buskers and traditional party games.

Party-goers will be able to gorge on delicious foods form local restaurants and bars including the famous pie and mash from The Castle Hotel, a BBQ at Common Bar, specialised teas from North Tea Power and cakes from Sugar Junction. Yummy!

Although The Northern Quarter Street Party is set to be the first of its kind, organisers are hoping to make it an annual event to celebrate the diverse area of the Northern Quarter.

The organiser, Carole Keating has said:"The Northern Quarter Street Party is going to be a celebration of the Northern Quarter and all who do great things in it. And it´s going to be a good knees up."
