A Sheffield venue is planning to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding with a Royal-style street party next weekend.
The free event, hosted by Tapton Hall on Shore Lane, is inviting partygoers to enjoy afternoon tea and themed party games, while watching a live screening as the Royal couple tie the knot next Saturday,19 May.
Some of the regally-inspired games at the event will include ‘Pin the Tail on the Corgi’, the chance to ‘Design your own Wedding Cake’ and ‘Draw your own Harry and Meghan’.
Hannah Stedman, Sales and Marketing Coordinator at Tapton Hall said: “The event is a free-entry, fun-for-all family event. There’s the opportunity for people to enjoy afternoon tea and it’ll just be a really nice event for everybody.”
“Most of the events we do are free, so it just brings everyone together. Free events, fun-for-all, different ages, families, couples students etc. It’s good to give back to the community so we just do what we can.”
“As for the Royal Couple, everyone loves Harry – I think he’s always been the favourite one. I think he and Meghan are a great couple and it should be a great wedding.”
Tapton Hall, which was built in the eighteenth century, originally operated as a masonic hall and was once home to Florence Nightingale’s grandmother.
The venue has since been renovated and is now being used for events such as weddings, corporate functions and birthday parties.
The wedding of Prince Harry and former US actress Meghan Markle is expected to be one of the biggest events of the year – with costs expected to be upwards of £32 million.
Around 27 million viewers tuned in across the UK to watch Prince Harry’s brother William’s marriage to Kate Middleton back in 2011 and similar number are expected to tune in on Saturday.
