Cornwall’s leisure and shopping destination will be pulling out all the stops to honour the special occasion in true British style on Bank Holiday Monday (4 June).
Visitors to White River Place will be treated to a sit-down tea party buffet and live entertainment, with traditional food and drink to cater for up to one hundred guests.
Tables will be decorated with Diamond Jubilee balloons, teapots and Union Jack flags, along with Jubilee hats, crowns and tiaras to help everyone get into the celebratory spirit.
A buffet will be laid out with everything that would be expected from a proper English tea party – sandwiches, pork pies, quiche, sausage rolls, trifle, tea, coffee and cold drinks. Each table will also have its own tiered cake stand filled with Victoria Sponges and Jubilee cupcakes.
Live music will be provided by six-piece swing band ‘The Roosters’, who will be performing three sets between 12pm and 4pm. During the breaks, a two-part Jubilee quiz will be held, with a fantastic prize up for grabs for the winners.
There will also be plenty of fun for the children, with a face-painter and balloon modeller, fairground rides and summer games.
Claire Daniel, White River Place Centre Manager, said: “Last year we held a brilliant street party here for the Royal Wedding, and everyone really got into the spirit and had a great day. We wanted to do something similar this year to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, but with even more fun, entertainment and food! National events like this are fantastic for bringing everyone together and celebrating as a community – just like people did 35 years ago for the Silver Jubilee and 60 years ago for the Queen’s Coronation!”
The White River Place Diamond Jubilee celebrations will be taking place in Aylmer Square from 12pm – 4pm on Monday 4 June. Food will be served on a first come, first served basis between 12pm and 2pm.
