ANYONE wanting to organise a right royal knees-up to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee should start planning now.
The borough's streets are set to come alive with music and bunting when Her Majesty celebrates 60 years on the throne on June 4.
And to help the party along, Ealing Council has once again agreed to waive the fee for most street party applications.
Council leader Julian Bell said: "So many people across the borough enjoyed the street parties, lunches and events last year to celebrate the Royal Wedding that we are expecting quite a few to hold events again this year.
"The long weekend is a great opportunity for neighbours, friends and families to come together and enjoy being part of the community, while helping Her Majesty celebrate 60 years as Queen."
The late May bank holiday has been moved to Monday, June 4 and an additional Jubilee bank holiday will take place on Tuesday, June 5 for four days of regal fun.
Queen Elizabeth II took to the throne on February 6, 1952, with a coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey on June 2. She is the second British monarch in history to reach the milestone, after Queen Victoria who reigned for 63 years.
All street party applications must be submitted by Monday, April 30.
Larger parties or public events with live music or alcohol being sold must apply for an entertainments license which will incur the usual fees.
