Stamford Quarter is gearing up for a bumper bank holiday weekend of entertainment to honour Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Taking place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June, the Not So Secret Garden will be home to a celebratory garden party full of activity as well as entertainment spanning along George Street.

The Not So Secret Garden will once again offer a whole host of activities, food and drink, entertainment and family fun to the local community.

Think afternoon tea, face painting, strawberries and cream and Pimms as well as exciting live music and roaming performers! Street party style tables and seating will give visitors a place to sit, eat, drink and enjoy the festivities with the family.

Workshops on the Saturday include a Create a Crown workshop and Plant a Tree for the Jubilee where children will be able to plant a sapling in a pot to take home and plant in their garden as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy Project. These activities are free to attend and can be booked by heading to the Not So Secret Garden Party website.

The traditional British celebrations don’t stop at food and decorations, with 40s style swing and jazz music to commemorate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. Live music performances on the Saturday include The Rip Roaring Success followed by Stutter and Twitch presenting the 7.45s.

Sunday’s schedule comprises swing band The Easy Riders as well as roaming musicians and performers on roller skates roving around the Stamford Quarter from the Not So Secret Garden all the way along the high street to Greggs, a real street party celebration.

Not So Secret Garden’s resident bar Stutter and Twitch will be serving up a full Jubilee extravaganza with their delicious hot dogs, afternoon tea and strawberries and cream as well as craft beer, Pimms and speciality coffee.

Boozy ice cream from A Few Scoops will also be available for the whole weekend, with delicious hand-made sweet treats from Sally’s Dream Cakes available on Sunday. All to be enjoyed surrounded by jubilee bunting and decorations.

The festivities will take place throughout the weekend finishing on Sunday afternoon. All the family is welcome to join the action packed garden party and your best Jubilee wear is encouraged!

The Stamford Quarter invites you to celebrate at the beating heart of Altrincham for the garden party of the year.
