Additional outdoor seating will be added to the streets to make space for the expected crowds and pop-up bars will provide the perfect drinks for the occasion.

Best of all- the street parties will be free to attend around the city and there’s no pre-booking required. Simply turn up and join Loiners in their masses at the four-day long celebrations.

Councillor Jonathan Pryor, Leeds City Council’s executive member for economy, culture and education, said: “It will be fantastic to see businesses and people come together to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
