Museumís Street Party Success

Family at street party

01 June 2011

Hundreds of flag-waving revellers descended upon Black Country Living Museum in Dudley today to celebrate the marriage of His Royal Highness Prince William to Catherine Middleton at one of the country’s most unique street party celebrations.

The right Royal knees up transformed the Museum’s historic village into a riot of red, white and blue as visitors enjoyed the atmosphere of a typical early 1900s street party.  Bunting was draped across the houses and cottages in the village and impromptu singalongs, street entertainment and a special royal ale ‘The Royal Splice’ all ensured a day to remember.  Visitors tucked into street party fayre fit for a king-in-waiting.  

Fiona Carding, Media Relations Executive said: “The Royal Wedding was a great opportunity to get-together for this special event.  The atmosphere today has been wonderful and visitors have really entered into the patriotic spirit of the day with many dressing up in red, white and blue or wearing union jack hats or tiaras!  Street parties are an intrinsic part of British culture and are a great way for people to celebrate good times together.”
