Street parties are being held throughout the region to celebrate the royal wedding.

Four street parties will be held in Southampton on Saturday, with a further two on Sunday.

Eastleigh and the New Forest will also have a number street parties, although there are no planned road closures in Test Valley or Fareham.

Hampshire’s biggest party by far will be held at Winchester Cathedral, where the royal wedding will be screened live. The event is free to attend, although tickets must be booked in advance.

Celebrations will continue until 5pm in the historic Outer Close, with a number of family-friendly activities being held.

Dean Catherine Ogle said “As this is a joyous Christian wedding we feel opening up Winchester’s great Cathedral for people to gather together and share the joy of this new beginning and national event in community.”

Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, Nigel Atkinson, the Queen’s personal representative in the county, said: “The royal wedding has created a real buzz around the country and I am delighted that there are so many events across Hampshire to celebrate this wonderful event."
