It will be all the fun of the fair in Madeley next month when the town celebrates the Queen’s platinum jubilee.
Madeley Town Council has a host of entertainment lined up for Saturday, May 28 to mark the royal milestone.
The special family event in the town will include a free fun fair, with traditional rides and games, face painting, jubilee craft activities and cake decorating.
Councillor Sue Taylor, the town council’s community & leisure committee chair, said: “One of the highlights of the day will be a grand royal fancy dress competition, with categories for best dressed dog, adult and child. We cannot wait to see what people dress up as!”
There will be a programme of live music on a stage in the centre of town, as well as street entertainment and a market, including charity stalls, and a ‘makers market’ in Russell Square.
“It is set to be a fantastic day of free family entertainment – we even have a royal ‘selfie’ screen so people can go home with a special royal snapshot,” councillor Taylor added.
Further jubilee attractions are being staged by The Anstice in Madeley and include a free platinum proms concert featuring the Telford Orchestra on June 3 and a street party in the ballroom, including a children’s disco and free children’s lunch, on June 5.
Tickets for those events are available from The Anstice.
