Biggest street party weekend for years
About 1/2 million people met their neighbours in 5000 street parties
This was all part of the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations on 11/12th June 2016/
This is all part of the long tradition of holding street parties for such national occasions. The number is not exact as there is no reliable source from all the councils across the country - it is based on the number of enquiries and activity on our street party website. The last big street party occasion was for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
But street parties are not just for royal events but for life.
They are a unique and powerful chance to meet neighbours of all ages and for the children to play in their street for a change without traffic.
Streets Alive has been promoting street parties for 14 years and now as part of our Age Friendly Streets campaign.
