A cockney knees-up: The Leonard Street Royal Wedding Party
On Bank Holiday Friday29 April there’s only one place to be in Shoreditch – at a good ol’-fashioned street party celebrating with the nation as Wills marries Kate.
One of young London’s favourite spots, The Book Club hosts The Leonard Street Royal Wedding Party, and invites locals, hipsters, fashionistas, scenesters, monarchists, patriots, flag-wavers, fancy-dressers and party people, young and old, to join in the fun.
Come together and celebrate the Royal Wedding in the sunshine – it’s a street festival, in the heart of London’s East End, with a real community feel.
The Book Club are laying on all sorts of tricks to keep you feeling the party vibes, joining forces with The Griffin, Pure Evil Gallery and a vintage fair curated by Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair and Rag&Bow: The Roaming Vintage Store. There’s a live outdoor screening of the Royal Wedding, live music from some of Shoreditch’s favourite faces, food from cool local eateries, punch with a kick, enough booze to keep the party flowing and all the bunting you can imagine. There’ll be tug’o’war, egg & spoon races, and a giant pass the parcel, plus lots more. Eat, drink, shop, dance, sing, play and party!
And, as the day-time fun ends, everyone will be invited into The Book Club to keep the party going. The lineup for the ‘Reception’ is a closely guarded secret – but this will be one wedding you’ll never forget.
