There are a variety of celebrations set to take place this weekend in Salisbury, from parties organised by schools, churches, youth groups and residents groups.
On Saturday morning, Salisbury Cathedral is inviting youth groups to come and help them build a giant birthday cake out of cardboard and an enormous woven willow crown that will dominate the Cathedral’s West lawns. In the afternoon why not join in the celebrations with fun selfie-spots, cup-cake decorating and many more craft activities for families. Everyone is welcome and bring a picnic! For more information, contact Sally at the cathedral – firstname.lastname@example.org
On Sunday afternoon from 12pm Salisbury City Council is hosting a fabulous Family Tea Party in Queen Elizabeth Gardens. Join your family and friends, grab a picnic and come on down for plenty of family fun. There will be activities for children with rides and a large inflatable, and all ages can take part in the free workshops which include making a clay crown and even your own corgi!
Take to the grass to dance the afternoon away to the sounds of The Tuba-Libres with their fantastic mix of modern songs to classics across the decades. Live performances at midday, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Celebrate the day in style with tasty food fit for a Queen with Charter 1227’s BBQ Kitchen and Hog Roast. Come along to the Afternoon Tea Marquee provided by Shipsey’s and have a free cup of tea and a slice of birthday cake (limited availability – first come, first served), made and supplied by Reeve the Baker.
