As the Prime Minister calls for the nation to get out and celebrate the Royal wedding, one the City’s most historic markets, in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England, will be holding the best ‘knees up’ on the day of the Royal Wedding, without the threat of rain or huge crowds.

Leadenhall market will provide the impressive backdrop for the ‘ Alternative Street Party’, hosted by the Lambs Tavern. With David Cameron himself calling on the nation to “get on and have fun” on the day of the Royal Wedding, is doing its bit to ensure that everyone has a wedding day to remember.

The wedding will be shown on a big screen in the market itself followed by a Great British Buffet. The meal will be followed, of course, by speeches. But this won’t be your usual boring, slightly drunken father of the groom. We will instead have alternative speeches from some great up and coming comedians. The wedding day will be topped off with our ‘Bitter & Twisted Wedding DJ’ who will be playing plenty of cheesy tunes, although as a loser in love, his selection may strike you as more morose than romantic. Requests will be positively encouraged, as long as they are positively gloomy.

The market will be decked out for a Royal Wedding, with plenty of flags and bunting and the street party will be taking place in front of the Lambs Tavern, which has a special ‘Royal Wedding Beer’ on tap for the wedding season. The best part about using the covered market is of course that revellers will be able to celebrate whatever the weather. The history and atmosphere of the market will add to the festivities.

Jenni Regan,’s founder, explains: “It seems ironic that although the City of London is playing host to the Royal nuptials there will be no public street parties on the day. We hope that by opening our party for everyone we can put the City of London on the map as the Street Party to remember of 2011”.

The party is also being held to try and raise money for a fantastic charity as part of Save the Children’s ‘Born to Party Campaign’.
Ms Regan adds: “As well as giving a percentage of the profits from the ticket sales we will also be running a sweepstake, hosting games such as ‘pin the tail on the corgi’, selling off wedding cake and running a wedding memorabilia raffle, all in aid of Save the Children. We hope that we can all have fun while giving a little back.”

The event is open to anyone over 18, regardless of where they live in London. It is however a ticketed event and you must book in advance through Tickets cost just £15 for the whole day which includes lunch.
