Here’s food for Royal thought

A TASTY treat is on the way for people celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

A bumper street party called the Big Jubilee Lunch will be held on Sunday, June 3, from noon to 5pm.

All you have to do is take your own food – or buy it at the venue – and you can join in with the event which will be held in a large marquee in the car park of Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience (HME).

The venue, the tables, the decorations and the entertainment will all be provided and there will be a bar where people can buy soft and alcoholic drinks. Tickets cost £1.50 per person.

As well as entertainment in the marquee itself, there will be other attractions including spectacular street theatre, costumed characters, fashion shows, a funfair and music – all with a retro flavour.
