Coniston street party to launch Jubilee celebration weekend

Diamond Jubilee Street Party at The Parade, Coniston Road, Patchway.
Residents of Patchway will be celebrating The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in traditional style when Coniston Community Centre hosts a street party and celebration event this Friday (1st June), between 3pm and 5pm.

There’ll be something for people of all ages with children’s activities, stalls, old time songs and a traditional fairground wheel.

Support has come from Coniston Community Association, Southern Brooks Community Partnership, Merlin Housing and Guinness.

Businesses including Hobby Craft, Asda, Boots, Build-A-Bear Workshop, WH Smith, The Body Shop and local shops in Patchway have also provided generous donations for a big raffle, and several are providing activities on the day.

Friday’s street party kicks off a busy weekend of Jubilee-themed events in and around Patchway that includes a street party in Rodway Road on Saturday (2nd June), another street party in the car park of Holy Family RC Church on Sunday (3rd June) and the lighting of the beacon on The Tumps on Monday night (4th June).

Up at The Mall (Cribbs Causeway), Pixie Lott will be the headline act at the free Bristol Jubilee Concert on Saturday night. The last few remaining tickets are being given away this week, from the information desk at The Mall.

Also on Saturday night, Patchway Community Centre is staging a Diamond Jubilee party with local blues, rock & roll and covers band The RiffToads. Tickets, priced £3, are available from the centre.
