On 12 June Her Majesty the Queen will mark her 90th birthday with The Patron’s Lunch – a street party style event for 10,000 guests on The Mall in London.

We are encouraging residents and community groups to reignite that great British community spirit and mark the Queen’s unwavering commitment to a lifetime of service by hosting their own celebrations. It could be a party in your own street, a celebration at your local school, or a party at your nearby community centre.

View our information about holding a street party.

Cambridgeshire County Council manage road closures and they have given us this statement:

"After the success of street parties to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee in 2012, Cambridgeshire County Council along with other local authorities is again making the road closure application process easier for anyone who wants to get their community together for the Queen’s 90th birthday. For small community events, the council will not charge for road closures on a cul-de-sac or residential roads without significant through traffic. However, you do need to let us know the activities you are planning so we have a record of events taking place."

Please contact the Cambridgeshire County Council team at ihmc@cambridgeshire.gov.uk to let them know about any street parties you are planning. They can also provide information and advice.

The national event on The Mall will raise money for over 300 charities of which The Queen is patron.  Huntingdonshire's residents and communities will be able to use their event to raise money for local or national charities of their choice.
