Borough to celebrate Queen’s Jubilee in style!

Shows a Party in 1981

Several amazing street parties have been planned for the Queen’s Jubilee Weekend.

From live music and HRH lookalikes to a life-size carriage specially made for the occasion, there will be a bit of everything in the Borough this Jubilee!

One of the more wonderfully eccentric street parties will be taking place in Frensham Drive, Nuneaton on Sunday 5 June. A life-size royal carriage and mini replica of the Buckingham Palace façade will be in situ along with a Queen lookalike!

The amazing designs are being built by organisers Denise Hewlett and Husband Nick. The structures are being made from recycled or donated materials and for a small donation visitors can have their very own photographic memento of the day they rubbed shoulders with Nuneaton royalty!

All money raised will go to the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.  There will also be a cake stall, BBQ, refreshments, tombola and many more activities to enjoy. Houses along the street will be decorated and residents are encouraged to dress up for the occasion.

Denise said:

“We wanted to hold a street party as it really brings community together and gives people a chance to meet their neighbours. Throughout lockdown we held socially distanced street gatherings and found that they really helped people through such a hard time.  

“The Mary Ann Evans Hospice is very close to our heart, they have helped many of our family and friends, so we wanted to help raise money for their cause. What better way to do it we thought than by offering a chance for people to have a snapshot of royalty as a memento of their day!

Resident Wade Huscroft of Newcomen Road, Bedworth has also been hard at work organising a Jubilee street party to help unite the community, he said:

“After the last few years living with Covid we thought there would be no better way to help bring the community together than with a good old street party!

“We’ve really enjoyed putting this party together and hope that people have a fantastic time on such a momentous occasion.”

Taking place on Friday 3 June from 2pm until 10pm the festivities will include a bouncy castle, on-stage live music from three fantastic performers and entertainment for the whole family.

In order to safely accommodate the many street parties taking place across the borough, the Borough Council has closed several roads. Please follow this link to find out where they are and if you’ll be impacted.

Alongside the many street parties taking place there are also several Council organised events happening across the borough over the four-day Jubilee weekend for people of all ages to enjoy, please come along and celebrate!
