Museum Brings Back the ‘Spirit of the Street Party’ for Royal Wedding

Street Party

29 April 2011

Inspired by celebrations of yesteryear, Black Country Living Museum is planning a right Royal knees up to celebrate the marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton on Friday, April 29, 2011.

The Museum’s Canalside Village will be transformed into a riot of red, white and blue for one of Britain’s most unusual street parties.  Bunting will be draped across the houses and cottages in the historic 1900s village and traditional street party treats will be on the menu for those who wish to join in the ticket-only street party buffet.  Numbers are limited but street entertainment, sing-alongs, themed crafts and face-painting ensure a street party atmosphere and community spirit that is boundless.

Flag waving revellers are invited to watch a live broadcast of the fairytale wedding on a spectacular big screen in the Museum’s Folkes’ Park.   The Royal Wedding, which takes place at Westminster Abbey, is likely to attract one of the biggest audiences in TV history with viewers tuning in from across the globe.

Andrew Lovett, Director and Chief Executive of Black Country Living Museum said:”The Royal Wedding is a great opportunity to bring back the ‘spirit of the street party’ and get together as a community for this special event.  Street parties are an intrinsic part of British culture and are a great way for people to celebrate good times together.”

Tickets to the Museum costs £13.60 for Adults, £11.00 for Seniors, £7.10 for Young People (5-16) and free admission for children under the age of 5.  Pre-purchased tickets for the street party lunch cost just £2 each. Tickets can be pre-purchased on 0121 520 8054 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              0121 520 8054      end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
