Royal Wedding Street Parties in Blackheath!

Pineapple and Cheese sticks with union jacks on them
Only joking. There aren’t any as far as I’ve heard. Apart from something at the Royal Standard pub, which is a bit grim at the best of times. I wrote to both Lewisham and Greenwich councils, asking if anyone had applied to close their streets in order to put up some buns, bunting, and retro-imperialism, but astonishingly nobody has.

Or at least, nobody in Lewisham has, and Greenwich won’t say, as it would encourage gate-crashers… Or something.

I’m off to the shelters until it passes. I fancy one of those cups though.

UPDATE: There are some parties going on, although none that involve the council closing roads. See the comments for more info.
