Marlow residents are invited to ‘Party like The Queen’ at a special free event organised by Marlow Town Council to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
In Higginson Park on Friday, 3rd June from 11am to 5pm, Marlovians will be transported back to the sights and sounds of the 1950s, experiencing what England was like during the time of the Queen’s coronation. All are invited to dress in 1950s-style or vintage, bring a blanket, enjoy a picnic and savour the day’s entertainment.
Top of the bill, starting around 11.30 am are The Polka Dots, bringing a modern twist on the classic 1940s and 50s close harmony swing trio, from Glenn Miller and The Andrews Sisters to The Dots’ unique Rhianna and Jamiroquai arrangements. There will be a strolling magician to keep everyone amused, and in the afternoon you can enjoy the music of the Bluejays, the popular and authentic rock and roll band, performing the biggest hits from the 1950s.
Other activities include fairground games and wooden swing boats. Popcorn and candy floss will be available, as well as a licensed bar. There’ll even be a Royal Throne with props – to create the perfect selfie or royal family photo!
“This will be a very special event for the town,” Marlow Town Mayor Richard Scott said. “We hope everyone comes along to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee with us in Higginson Park — all are welcome!”
