Neighbours invited to hold summer street parties for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations

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
