PLANS for events to celebrate the royal wedding in the Hounslow borough are in full swing.
Brentford residents are in for a treat if an application for a large scale party is given the green light by Hounslow Council.
Julia Quilliam, who runs Quilliam Property Services on the High Street, is organising an event in the afternoon and evening of Friday April 29, straight after Kate Middleton and Prince William tie the knot in the morning.
Ms Quilliam, of New Road, is a member of the local chamber of commerce and the Brentford High Street Steering Group.
She said: "We held a party for St George's Day last year and it was a huge success, so I thought why not combine that party with the royal wedding and make it even bigger.
"It will be a great local event and it will really show how much is going on in Brentford."
Ms Quilliam is preparing to approach the council for permission.
It is the hoped the event, which will be held in the market place, piazza and by the canal, will include a host of street stalls, archery in The Butts, performances from the likes of the Alliance Dance Unit, and the involvement of dozens of local businesses.
Times are yet to be confirmed, but the party is planned to start in the afternoon following the wedding, and is expected to run until late into the night.
Ms Quilliam said: "It's good for the community, and it will be a great way of bringing the community together.
"It will have to be entirely self funding, it will be a not for profit event for everyone."
The landlady of The Swan pub in Hanworth, Tara Dawson, is also hoping to hold an event at the pub to mark the royal union.
She hopes to use the car park for stalls and entertainment, and is soon to speak to the council about the guidelines she will have to follow.
Miss Dawson said: "We are hoping to hold a big event on the Friday (April 29) and then another on the following Monday to raise money for charity, but we are not sure of the details yet.
"It's a real one off and I saw it as a great opportunity to hold an event for the community."
In December last year the council revealed that it would stick by its no charge policy for street party licenses as the world watches the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The council applicants would not face a fee unless they are making financial gain.
If this is the case, they would require a temporary event licence, which costs £21 to process.
