If you are thinking about holding a Diamond Jubilee Street Party during The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend 2 – 5 June 2012, here some tips to help you along the way …
Discuss street party ideas with friends and neighbours and invite them to a meeting to agree when and where you hold your event.
Nominate different people for the various jobs required to organise a street party – remember to involve everyone who would like to take part.
Ask your local council about road closures and if necessary apply for a road closure – alternatively agree to hold an informal party ‘off the street’ in a cul-de-sac, on a driveway, in a park, local square or on the pavements.
Find out from your local council if you require insurance or a licence to hold the street party.
Plan activities for all ages and tastes – exchange ideas with everyone involved – encourage people to bring memories of previous street parties they’ve attended.
If you organise music or other entertainment make sure it appeals to everyone who’ll be there.
Agree who brings food, games, bunting, tables, chairs, crockery and all the other things you think you’ll need for a fun filled street party – decide who is responsible for providing and setting up the bunting.
Make arrangements to clear up after the event.
If you have a legal order for a road closure make sure this is displayed, arrange for cars to be moved and set up road closure barriers.
