4 June 11.00am – 5.00pm
Grounds of St Mary, off Clarence Street, Cheltenham
Come and join us in the grounds of St Mary’s Church to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style with a street party. The Bishop of Gloucester will launch this day of fun for all. During the day there will be various kinds of music and a chance to have a go at salsa dancing. You can get creative by decorating your own Diamond Jubilee souvenir or make a crown. A treasure trail in St Mary’s Church will provide the lucky winner with their own ‘diamond’. Punch and Judy and storytelling will also entertain and young visitors can enjoy a bouncy castle.
Adding to the festivities will be lots of delicious food and drink.
We are also planning to have a variety of stalls – if you make or create and are interested please get in touch with Sophia Wilson, Exhibitions & Education Manager, Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum.
Gina Wilson, Chairman of the Friends of Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum says 'This promises to be a splendid day out for the whole family and a fitting tribute to the Queen, whose championing of community spirit we are delighted to celebrate'.
The day is being organised by the Friends of Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum, St Mary and St Matthew to help raise funds for the Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum Development Fund.
