People living in the Woughton area of Milton Keynes can look forward to a right royal community event to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Local community organisers and councillors have come together to stage a huge party at the Moorland Infants School from 12 noon - 4pm on Sunday 3 June.

Tickets are now available for the ‘Mad Hatters Jubilee Tea Party’ and a host of other attractions and can be bought from the reception desk at the Moorlands Centre.

The all-in price of £2 for adults and £1 for children also includes games, rides, fancy dress and other fun activities. Other highlights of the day are expected to be a Best of British Bake Off cake making competition, judged by local cake making businesses, Sweetness & Delight, Arete-Cakes and Cupcake Cutie, and a performance from the Brewing Up Costumes from Festive Road.

“This is going to be a fabulous event, exclusively open to Woughton residents of all ages, which will mark this important jubilee anniversary in appropriate style,” said Kat Newman, Community Mobiliser for Beanhill.

“We’re encouraging people to get their tickets because booking is essential and I’m sure people won’t want to miss out. It’s going to be a great community day out,” she added.

To get people in the mood for the Mad Hatter’s Jubilee Tea Party, the Independent Cinema MK organization will be showing the original ‘Alice in Wonderland’ cartoon film on the Friday before the event.

Entries to the Best of British Bake Off competition will be judged on the day.

Groups and individuals involved in staging this mammoth event include the Beanhill Action Group, the Woughton Community Council including Beanhill councillors Tina El-Shabrawy, Margaret Roberts and Peter Orme, the Moorlands Centre, the Community Events Group (which runs social events for all in the Woughton Area) and Kat Newman.
