FAMILIES can share the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with the royal family and the nation – from a Cheshire park.

A giant screen is being erected in Alderley Edge Park so villagers can watch celebrations as they are broadcast live on the BBC.

Queen, Duran Duran, George Ezra, Rod Stewart and Diana Ross and just some of the stars performing in a Platinum Party at the Palace from 3pm to 10pm on Saturday, June 4.

Cllr Mike Dudley-Jones, chairman of Alderley Edge Parish Council, said: “Many families will want to organise street parties and get together with friends.

“But not everyone lives in a place where street parties are easy to arrange.

“The parish council has ordered a giant screen so that anyone in the village can set up a picnic party at the concert on Saturday and/or arrange for special lunch parties on the Sunday.

“It’s bring your own food and wine, tables and chairs in the park for what we hope will be a wonderful, joyous celebration together.

“Our hospitality venues in the village will also be offering special takeaway menus for delivery to the park.”

The Great Jubilee Lunch and Platinum Jubilee Pageant will be broadcast live from the BBC on Sunday, June 5.

“There will be copious quantities of bunting, Union Jacks on flagpoles, Queen’s canopy trees and our village planters freshly planted with a lot of red, white and blue,” said Cllr Dudley-Jones.

“It should be quite a community event.”

The parish council has also commissioned a local blacksmith to design a commemorative wrought iron gate for the entrance to the park.

This will be erected later in the year.
