Lucky Queen Liz gets to have two birthdays every year. Although there will be no complaints from us, as her official birthday has not only allowed pub opening hours to be extended this weekend, but it’s also given us another excuse to party hard. (As if London needed one anyway). But what Her Majesty wants Het Majesty gets…
1. Party @ The Water Poet
The brilliant East London pub are throwing a wild party on from 11am on 11th June in celebration of the Queen turning the big 9-0. Celebrating all things royal, they will have a dedicated Prosecco bar in the garden,
9-11 Folgate St, Spitalfields, London E1 6BX
2. Trooping the Colour
For a bit of pomp and circumstance, Trooping the Colour is the official celebration of the royal birthday. It takes place on the Horse Guards Parade and begins at 10am Saturday 11th. Although it’s too late to get tickets now, you can still watch the whole shindig on the BBC. (And we expect you to have a G&T in hand!)
3. The Queen’s Fringe at Lamb’s Conduit Street
If you aren’t one of the 10,000 people attending the Mall Street Party, then have no fear. On Sunday 12th June, a truly British street party is taking place by Russell Square, complete with sponge cake and cream teas, Pimm’s and booze served up by The Perseverance Pub and plenty of dancing, with live music from a brass band. How marvellously traditional!
Lamb’s Conduit Street, WC1N 3NB
To celebrate the Queen’s Birthday and her love for our four-legged friends, all local restaurants and retailers of Park Walk are joining forces for a dog-themed street party in aid of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home on 12th June! Enjoy a day of face painting, pet grooming, bouncy castles, raffles and a selection of food and drink from maze Grill, Henry Root, GOAT, Mandaloun, Bacchus, Kosmopol & Chelsea Wine Cellar. Check it out and get your tickets here. But don’t forget your pooch!
