Street Party Tips and Ideas
If you're thinking of having a street party to celebrate the royal wedding, a PURE radio can help you set the scene. Here are a few ideas to help you create the post war 'all in it together' ambience for your street party:
- Bunting to hang around the lamp posts, preferably union jack design but anything goes
- Long tables for everyone to come together, seating for all ages
- Games and activites to encourage neighbours to participate, like tug of war, skittles or ball games
- Plenty of food provided by all who want to contribute, maybe hold a cake competition
- A PURE radio to listen to the commentary of the wedding
Any party needs music to get it going. For live coverage of the royal wedding and to tune in to music from decades gone by, you will need a sturdy, easy-to-use digital radio! PURE has a range of radios to fit the bill:
