Official Advice and Guidance

We want you to celebrate – and any kind of celebration is great by us! A garden party, a gathering in your local town hall or even a picnic in the park – we’d love to have you get involved! You can check out some of the great events happening on our interactive map.

There’s even the opportunity to throw a traditional street party! If you want to, we have some helpful advice from the Department for Communities and Local Government which has updated its official guidance on street parties in order to support The Patron’s Lunch.

Whether you’re celebrating with a street party or something simpler, there’s lots of great information on making your party extra special in our How To guide!
