People Encouraged To Plan Royal Wedding Celebrations

People are being encouraged to plan royal wedding celebrations ahead of Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan Markle on 19 May.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has now published ideas for people to get involved in the couple's big day.

In the release, they write that holding a street party is one way to get together with your neighbours to celebrate the event and have provided a guide to organising one, including tips and steps to take.

For example, their online guidance helps bust myths and provides a useful checklist and practical advice for what is needed to anyone planning their own street party.

The number one tip from our guidance is to plan early by getting in touch with your council at least four to six weeks in advance. The guidance includes a simple form people can use to let their local council know about their plans and information on how to apply for a road closure as well as information on playing music, insurance and fund raising.

They continue: "Did you know for example that you don't need a music licence if you want to play music at your street party? Or that you don't need to buy expensive road signs you can lend or hire them."

Many councils have already announced that they are waiving charges for street party road closures, making it easier and cheaper than ever to hold celebrations. The government is urging other councils to follow suit.

Jake Berry MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, said: "We've made it easier than ever for local residents from all backgrounds to come together to celebrate the royal wedding and we hope councils will get into the spirit by helping people wishing to organise street parties.

"With the FA Cup final taking place on the same day, there's never been a better reason to hold a street party and our updated guidance makes clear the steps residents need to take to ensure an enjoyable and safe day is had by all."
