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!
