Bedford's Street Party Bonanza!

From Woodland Drive to Moor End Road and Dovehouse Close, residents across Bedford Borough will be joining in the national day of celebration to mark the Royal Wedding on Friday 29th April.

Bedford Borough Council has granted permission for a total of 19 street parties across the borough, with a further 6 expected to take place on Council owned green spaces. 

Earlier this year, the Council announced it would be offering extra help to local residents who wanted to hold their own Royal Wedding street party. Public drop in sessions were held in the Harpur Suite, while the Council also waived the fees involved and shortened the amount of notice needed from 12 weeks to just 2. A single application form was also introduced.

Andy Pidgen, Events Manager, said: “Our aim was to make it as easy as possible for people who wanted to hold a street party to do so. Our drop-in sessions were well attended and from there the number of applicants steadily rose.

“People who wanted to have a street party only needed to fill in a single form and did not have to pay any Council fees which are normally associated with street parties and road closures.

“I know many more people will be having their own parties which do not require a road closure and we wish everyone in the borough a great day of celebration.”
