The NZ BritExpat cyber DIAMOND JUBILEE STREET PARTY needs YOU !
 
I'm usually up for a get-together & party. Any old excuse will do & what better reason than the Queens Diamond Jubilee .
A great way for us to have a bit of a good old-fashioned knees up altogether.

It doesn't matter where you're coming from or going to. If you're for the Queen & Royalty or not. All you need to have is your party spirit & a well natured smile. :)

We'll need to set up trestles. Dress for the occasion ( your avatars ) . We'll need plates of food & drink. If everyone says what they'll bring , we won't end up with 50 salads and an old crust of bread. :sneaky:
Suggestions for good street party music , games, jokes, decorations. Perhaps share memories, photos, anecdotes of other jubilees and similar celebrations

Party poopers to be cajoled out of being sour pusses , embraced with the jocular , given a cup of tea & a flag to wave.:sneaky:

Be great to see a fair few of us here.

I'll bring coronation chicken. Unimaginative, but undeniably tasty

I don't really remember any street celebrations in Sheffield, for any royal occasions (or any other for that matter).

Still I am happy to bring some wine!

You sir , are a diamond geezer with the most wonderful wine. I can personally vouch for that.

I think photos , descriptions & reviews are in order within this thread so we know what we'll be drinking :drinkwine:

Please do the honours.

I shall make some profiteroles & bring them. I think the occasion calls for some Veuve Cliquot bubbles, even if I am a republican ;). Any excuse for a party & a good old-fashioned knees-up :drinkwine::cake::drinkwine:

Any of us of a certain age :sneaky: still got their Silver Jubilee Glass that all British schoolchildren were given back in 1977. I have :nod:

Nopes ! You won't be ,as I anticipated this m'ghosty lad & sealed that Anderson Shelter ,masquerading as a socialist concrete bunker, so you can't get in . :sneaky:

Can't have you ending in Cat's Pee Alley, where miseries gather to kick dustbins and slouch . So just mutter into your beer. You can help with the chairs. :nod:

I went to the last one, in '77 and was frozen out 'cos I played 'God save the Queen', by the Sex Pistols, on the street music centre, so I went off to my bedroom, (like a good boy) and played it at setting 11 :eek:and opened all my windows:p

Our street party went on for hours, way into the wee small hours, everyone enjoyed themselves and I was even allowed in the end to play my Stranglers :thumbup:

Mind you it was a hot summer!:thumbsup:

Make 200. Mr and him can eat 20 at least.

You won't be wanting that once you sample Catchafire's wine. It's beautiful.
