If you’re thinking of holding a last minute ‘official’ Royal Wedding street party, you may be a bit late; the deadline for Street Party Application Forms to be handed in to the Council was March 31st.
However, if you aren’t one of the Worthing streets who have applied to hold a street party and successfully obtained a road closure permit, there are many other events you could attend to help celebrate the wedding on everybody’s lips.
Worthing Borough Council states that there are some 31 requests for road closure permits for street parties, but they also say that in line with what the Prime Minister has said, “the Council wishes to encourage those residents still wishing to hold a party”.
So there is still hope! If this doesn’t sound up your street (sorry), then there is to be a good old knees up on Broadwater Green after the Royal knot has been tied.
Running from 4pm to 9pm, the event will move indoors to St Marys Church, Broadwater, if the rain rears its head.
The Worthing Borough Council website has some well-laid out guidelines if you are planning to go ahead and hold an 'illegal' street party. If you’re holding or attending a street party, send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org – we’d love to see them!
