Communities across Reading are invited to host street parties to celebrate the Jubilee without having to pay the usual road closure fees.
2022 marks the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – when she becomes the first British monarch to reign for 70 years. And to mark this auspicious milestone, residents can now apply to host a street party during the special bank holiday in June - the Jubilee weekend - 2 to 5 June 2022.
Anyone who wishes to apply to hold a street party on any of the specified weekends should complete the form available at www.reading.gov.uk/streetparties.
Permission will normally be given, without the usual road-closure fees, subject to it not affecting a main through-route or public transport route.
The deadline for applications is Friday 4 April 2022.
Helpful tips, advice and support for organising a successful event can be found on the Street Party website: www.streetparty.org.uk
