London to enjoy Jubilee street parties next month.

11th May 2012

Thousands of Londoners are expected to enjoy street parties over the Diamond Jubilee weekend.

In particular, two giant parties in the capital are expected to attract many people looking to celebrate the Queen's reign in style.

A special table capable of accommodating 500 people will be erected on a closed road from The Ritz to Piccadilly Circus, while a further party will be held close to the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

The later will have table seating 800 party-goers and will provide a perfect view for those looking to watch the Thames boat pageant pass by – making it ideal for those enjoying London hotel deals.

Overall, figures suggest that in excess of 1,000 parties are planned across the capital city as Londoners and visitors get in to the Jubilee mood.

As well as street parties, there are also special Jubilee parties being held in key locations including an event in Greenwich which is expecting around 8,000 people to gather together to enjoy watching the Jubilee parade on a giant television screen, while also enjoying live music and food and drink stalls.

All of the parties are part of a nationwide initiative pioneered by the Eden Project, which takes place annually and tries to encourage people to get together to take part in or organise a Big Lunch event.  However, this year the project has been renamed the Big Jubilee Lunch in recognition of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and has been expanded to include street parties.

The director of the organisation Peter Stewart called on Londoners to join forces with friends and neighbours to mark the unique event.

"It's a celebration of the people and where you live," he added.
