Millions are expected to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton exchange their vows at Westminster Abbey on 29th April. Some might be watching in the comfort of their own home; however there is lots going on across to the country to celebrate.
Here are some my favourite royal wedding events from up and down the country…
Northern Quarter Street Party – A anti-royal wedding celebration, which is however held on the big day. The event promises ‘1940s style get-up, dancing among bunting and a special punch’.
Cocktails in a teacup- Celebrate the Royal Wedding with cocktails in teacups in a swanky Manchester bar.
‘Royal Week’ at Shugborough Hall celebrates with bridal dresses from the past two centuries on display. Official photographs from Prince Charles and Diana’s wedding will be featured and children can enjoy royal craft activities.
Exeter food and drink festival celebrates the big day with a giant screen, wedding themed food workshops, fancy dress and a delicious selection of local produce.
There is a lot to do in Edinburgh to celebrate Will and Kate. From the Majestic Edinburgh bus tour, a tour of St. Andrews where the couple met in their university days and a trip on the Royal Yacht Britannia for champagne afternoon tea.
Watch the ceremony on Birmingham’s big screen in Victoria Square where the city will be celebrating together. Big Screens are located across the country and most will be screening the wedding- more information on BBC Big Screen website.
Oxford is celebrating in style with a ‘Royal Jousting’ event; recreating the mighty Knight battle between the Windsor’s and Tudors. Guests can also enjoy a puppet show, picnic area and giant screens which will be screening the wedding. Sounds fabulous!
The wedding itself is in London so many onlookers might be able to catch a glimpse of the bride and groom at Westminster or on the royal route. However, there will be a observation wheel in Hyde Park along with a big screen where onlookers can sit back and watch the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
