A COUNTRY pub will celebrate the Royal Wedding in style with a massive community knees-up.

The Swan in Heddon On The Wall is planning a day-long village fete to mark Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton on April 29.

There will be craft stalls, keep fit demonstrations, cooking classes with the Brownies and Guides, food, children’s rides and live entertainment, while Radio Tyneside will broadcast from the event.

Pub General Manager Kathleen Morris said: “We’ve not had a Royal event of this kind since 1981 when William’s dad married Princess Diana and it really is going to be a special day that we wanted to enjoy in style.

“Back then, people came together to hold street parties and huddled around small TV screens to watch Prince Charles tie the knot. This time we have big screen TVs so guests can see the future king and his wife in all their regal glory.”

The Herald has previously reported that Cresswell’s Golden Sands Holiday Park is having a similar event, and will even have corgis in attendance.
