More Food Stall Holders Wanted at Old Town’s Platinum Jubilee Street Party

The Platinum Jubilee Street Food Festival party will take place on Sunday, June 5.

The event, which takes place on Sunday, June 5, is packed with activities and a wide variety of refreshments.

However, the Regeneration Of Bridlington Old Town (ROBOT) group wants to expand the food offering of the day and hopes to attract people who can deliver Indian, Caribbean, Thai and Mexican street food that is quick to prepare and easy to serve.

Traders will need the usual hygiene and civil liability certificates and a simple itinerant trader’s license issued by the ERYC.

The Coastal Voices Choir will perform at the event.

Event stands can be powered without electricity for just £45.

The Platinum Jubilee celebration will see the historic High Street closed to all traffic, adorned with Union flags and Commonwealth streamers, alongside Ukrainian blue and yellow and British red, white and blue streamers.

The street will have dozens of picnic tables for families to enjoy a variety of foods from specially selected street food stalls spaced along the street.

Various street entertainment will fill the area with music, fun and celebration, in honor of the Queen’s achievements over the past 70 years.

The official opening will be proclaimed by the Mayor of the Town of Bridlington at 11am, followed by a short procession down the street and back to the Market Square. The 252 Squadron Drum Band and The Red Admiral Majorettes kindly agreed to participate, along with local veterans.

The day’s events then include entertainment from Coastal Voices in the morning; Pantasy Steel Band from Hull in the afternoon; Punch and Judy and Juggling by Chris Walton; music by Alex Verda and his friends and not one but two great roadshows.

Yorkshire Coast BID will position its roadshow caravan at the junction of High Street and St John Street, informing and entertaining crowds, and welcoming visitors to the city.

Bridlington Gold Radio will have its tour trailer and DJs positioned at the top of Gordon Road alongside a performance space for Red Admiral Majorettes. Accordionist Julian will also play from time to time.

The day’s entertainment will end with the resurrection of the great Tug O’ War inter-pub competition in the old town around 4:30 p.m.

The ROBOT team will also be offering a free Sunday lunch to MASH veterans at the main restaurants in the Old Town and £5 vouchers for Hinge Center regulars to enjoy delicious treats from the food stalls of street.

Martyn Coltman, one of the organizers of ROBOT, said: “We have already secured a wide range of food stalls for the event, but we would like Indian, Caribbean, Thai and Mexican street vendors to expand the offer. to visitors.

“We have a good selection of stalls and attractions, but would like a bit more variety if possible.

“It’s a bit late as there is only a month left and people would need a street trader’s license which they can get from the council.

“They will also need to have their own mobile catering equipment and bring their own generators etc. I can send the terms and conditions to anyone interested.”
