Preparing for a right royal knees-up in Leamington

LEAMINGTONIANS are invited to enjoy a right royal day of celebrations featuring entertainment, activities, games and competitions to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

BID Leamington, in partnership with Leamington Town Council and Warwick District Council, is hosting a Right Royal Picnic which will take over the Pump Room Gardens on Saturday June 4 between 11am and 6pm.

Families are invited to take along a picnic and enjoy live music and entertainment, fairground rides, cookery classes with ‘Get Cooking’ and tie dye activities, crown making and bunting making with ‘ArtLAB’ in the arts and crafts tent.

There will also be a range of competitions, and visitors can take part in a ‘Corgi Trail Treasure Hunt’, get involved in the ‘Best Dressed’ contest or put their baking skills to the test in the ‘Right Royal Bake Off’ competition.

BID Leamington is working with local artist and businesswoman Amelia Renfrew who has designed the artwork for the event.

A black and white copy of Amelia’s artwork has been produced and organisers are inviting children to download a copy to colour in and bring their creations to display in the competition tent at the event.

Stephanie Kerr, executive director of BID Leamington, said: “We’re delighted to be organising a Right Royal Picnic to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years of service.

“It should be a fantastic day of fun and entertainment for all of the family, and we look forward to welcoming everyone along to the Pump Room Gardens with their picnic blankets.”
