Jubilee Street Parties

Aiming for 2 million having street parties

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2-5 June 2012 will be a great excuse to hold a street party following a long tradition which started in 1919.

1 million people had street parties for last year's royal wedding on that spring date. With a summer jubilee and councils being much better prepared, we are expecting many more street parties, with even up to 2 million to taking part.

Residents can start now to plan the event in principle. It is a unique opportunity to meet the neighbours with the kids and adults playing together in a traffic-free street. See our Guide for residents.

If residents don't want to shut the road off properly they could have a more casual StreetMeet on a pavement, at the end of a cul de sac, driveway or at a park.

We can also help with planning community projects for this national event.
