On May 19th, Orpingtonians join the celebration as His Royal Highness Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle. Watch the historic event live from St George’s Chapel, Windsor, on the big screen in the heart of Orpington town centre.
Royal weddings have traditionally taken place on a weekday but with the unofficial protocol being broken, more people will now be able to watch and enjoy the day.
So if you’re not one of the 600 people that have been invited to the service at St George’s, then come and celebrate this historic event broadcast live from St George’s Chapel, Windsor, which will be shown on the big screen in the heart of Orpington town centre.
This free to attend event for all the family, is being brought to you by Orpington 1st, The Walnuts Shopping Centre and London Square.
A traditional British Street Party atmosphere awaits guests in Market Square which will be adorned with union flag bunting and even red, white and blue confetti.
The broadcast starts at 10am and ahead of the ceremony taking place at 12 midday you will have great views of the build up to the ceremony and witness the Carriage Procession from St George’s Chapel through Windsor Town returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk.
We are delighted that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II* will be joining us on this momentous occasion, so come dressed to impress as we help the Royal couple celebrate in style.
Relax in a deck chair or take a pew at a picnic bench as a variety of refreshments will be available to purchase from a selection of food & drink stalls. A range of garden games and Royal wedding inspired crafts will keep the younger members of the crowd entertained.
So, join in the fun, come along and mark this event with true Orpingtonian spirit.
