Royal Wedding Street Party

Street Party

If you are thinking of organising a street party to join with the 37 groups already applying in the borough, to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, the deadline for applications is 30th April.

The Council has agreed to wave the cost of closing roads on the 19th & 20th May and the bank holiday weekend of 26th, 27th & 28th May. This includes the cost of the statutory adverts required to make drivers aware. Neighbours and resident groups will only have to find the cost of hiring ‘road closed’ signage.

Advice from Richmond Council is to prepare well in advance, including talking to neighbours, and applying in good time to have roads closed. The Council has a Street Party information webpage with application form here.
