The weekend we have ALL been waiting for is here. It’s time to dust off your best hat, unravel your Union Jack flag, and prepare the Pimms: Royal Wedding Weekend is upon us.
We’re assuming our invite got lost in the post, but that won’t stop us celebrating the wedding of the year, nay, the wedding of the CENTURY. We’ve rounded up Brighton’s best offerings for those of you who also seemed to miss out on an invite…
Wedding Garden Party at Stanmer House
A regal setting for a regal occasion. The sensational Dolly Rocket will be hosting Stanmer House’s Royal Wedding Garden Party this weekend – complete with four LED screens showing the big event, so you’re guaranteed to not miss a second of the action. There’s food and drink available throughout the day too – cucumber sandwich anyone?
Stanmer House, 10am, tickets, BN1 9QA.
Royal Wedding Street Party
This is it. We’ve reached peak Britain: a street party, celebrating a royal wedding, complete with a Pimms tent. The Crescent is hosting the ultimate garden party: head down from 10.30am to enjoy a hog roast, bouncy castle, arts and crafts and more.
The Crescent Pub, 10.30am, more info here, Clifton Hill.
Beach Royal Wedding Broadcast
Can you get any more quintessentially British than reclining on a deckchair, on Brighton beach watching a royal wedding? We think not. A 40m screen has been erected on the seafront in front of the i360, where the wedding can be viewed free of charge, with coverage starting at 10am. And if a free showing on the beach isn’t enough to tempt you, there will also be a bouncy castle, face painting and fancy dress competitions. (and if your name is Harry or Meghan gets to go up the i360 for free!)
Brighton seafront, see facebook page for more info, Lowers Kings Road, BN1 2LN.
The Garden Bar Royal Wedding Party
Another outdoor party… good job British weather is so reliable! Hove’s Garden Bar is hosting an all- day party to celebrate this holy matrimony, complete with BBQ, full coverage of the wedding AND half price prosecco. Also, if you’re able to drag yourself away from staring at Harry and Meghan, they’re also showing the FA Cup Final. Just in case you remember that life goes on no matter what royals are getting hitched.
The Garden Bar, Facebook event/more info, 324 Portland Road, BN3 5LF.
