Royal wedding fever fails to take hold in Brent

Not one street party is booked in just five weeks before Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot

Royal wedding fever has failed to take hold in Brent where not one street party has been booked in to coincide with the couple’s big day.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are due to wed on April 29 at Westminster Abbey, and commentators had expected councils to be flooded with applications for a royal knees-up.

But just five weeks before the couple are due to walk up the aisle, only two streets, one in Queen’s Park and another in Harlesden, have registered an expression of interest to hold a party.

In a bid to encourage more applications, Brent Council has waived the usual �2,000 charge to close a road.

Residents who wish to hold a street party on the royal wedding day must submit their application by the April 4 at 5pm. For more information contact Paul Richards on 020 8937 5145 or email
