Does anybody know of any planned street parties? If so, where?

I think there is one in Valence rd although I'll probably be working.

I think 29 April is Cliffe Independence Day this year. Not sure if that is a royal celebration or a rebellion.

Oh is it? Nice of the organisers to tell the Cliffe residents in advance again /sarcasm
Must remember to carry a bill around in my pocket to save being charged to enter my own street upon returned from the shops outside the threshold

Cliffite you are indeed a miserable human being, I hope you go away from Lewes on Bonfire Night then and therefore don't get to enjoy the free entertainment provided by the Cliffe on the evening!

Returning to the thread, I'll be having a street party in the Pells area, but it's a private affair in the shared back lane with all our neighbours. Should be a cracker!

All I'm asking is a bit of warning for when the street I live on is going to be closed off, not too much to ask & hardly makes me a miserable human being.
As I live on Cliffe High St, I do enjoy Bonfire Night with balcony views and donate heavily on the evening so go stick a rookie somewhere

Anyway Gate Crasher, the Lewes Council website details communities that have requested street closures. If you scroll down through the list to the right date, shows everywhere that has so far applied

I too live in Cliffe High St and I enjoy Cliffe Independence Day. It's only a bit of fun amd all for the bonfire society. I have been hoping that Cliffe would have a Royal Wedding Street Party. But it is not to be.

I've heard they are throwing quite the celebration in East way, nevil estate with fireworks on the green and a buffet and music to celebrate the wedding in style. Guests are welcome.

Cliffe Independence Day is 29th May not April. Well done Sashimi.

Yes, EBM, I must pay more attention next time when the list is read out. 29 May not 29 April. So, it's Restoration Day (1660). Another royal anniversary has been chosen for Cliffe BS's declaration of an independent republic. Remember, remember .... treason and plot.

No, the end of May bank holiday was chosen, like every year.

Cliffite, you are asked to make a donation to The Cliffe BS on independence day which goes towards funding the celebrations on the 5th. The heavy donations you make on the evening go to local charities, which I am sure are very grateful.

I'm having a party for the Royal Wedding. It'll be in my hotel room in Bruges, and none of you are invited.
Should have gone to a country that's a republic really, I suppose, but I love Bruges.

I still can't understand why people would be having parties to celebrate the wedding of two strangers. Just because you've seen them on TV doesn't mean you know them - and they certainly don't know you.

Because stupid people think the royals give a damm about them. England for a republic, no to parasitic free loading royals, What a waste of public money. To anyone who wants to tell me different , dont bother, i wont listen i will never change my mind and i will assume you are an idiot.

ACT - agree with you about Bruges - except don't you find their sloping cobbled pavements a bit hard on the ankles?

After inadvertently necking a few beers that were 9%, the sloping cobbles were the least of my worries, Madame B. I think it probably just offset my list to starboard, tbh.

I hope you haven't been on that Dark Star stuff that smells like Skunk.

And don't eat the delicious warm salads they have there. I spent two days of my stay with the trots.
