How to Throw a Jubilee Street Party - Ideas, Themes, Design, Activities and More

Here in the UK, street parties are usually held for a Royal or national celebration, such as the Jubilee this year and the Royal wedding last year. You need to apply for permission for your road to be closed off, using an application form to your local council (look on your local council website). Once confirmed, you can set about organising the event with your neighbours. Delegate tasks, purchases and baking to different homes so that everyone can help contribute to the event!

      Even though we live in a cul-de-sac there is nothing organised. We are quite happy though to sit quietly at home and to avoid the crowds over the holiday weekend. I am toying with the idea of getting up at 3:30am on Tuesday to go and watch the 3 Queens (Cunard ships) arrive in Southampton, the first time ever that they will have been together.

      I organized a street party when the neighborhood was new, but we haven't had one before. Love the idea of a Jubilee Street Party!

      Street parties are such great fun, but I've never been to one in England.

      I've never been to a Jubilee Street party. Sounds like fun.
