A DAY of parties and entertainment has been planned to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The council are organising an all day street party in Bromley High Street with roving entertainers, a falconry display, music and displays to mark the event on May 15.
The Queen will be also be visiting Bromley on the same day, the first time since 1986, as part of her Jubilee tour of the UK.
Bromley was one of six London boroughs to be chosen.
The Queen’s Gardens, off Kentish Way, and the Glades Shopping Centre will also be transformed with fashion exhibits celebrating British designers from the past 60 years.
Portfolio holder for renewal and recreation Councillor Peter Morgan said: “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee truly is a once in a lifetime event as it has only ever been celebrated once before in Britain for Queen Victoria.
“Bromley is set to be filled with patriotic revellers so why not come along and join in with the party atmosphere in the town centre. 2012 is a very exciting year for Bromley and our special Jubilee celebrations will make it a very memorable one.”
Details of the Queen's visit are yet to be released.
