Woolworths.co.uk, the online family superstore, has handed out
free royal wedding street-party packs to residents of streets, avenues,
drives, closes and terraces with Kate, Catherine or William in their
name to help celebrate the most anticipated marriage of the last three
Based on pre-sales of Royal Wedding decorations and royal wedding souvenirs, Woolies predicts that on the day of the Royal Wedding, the UK will see a minimum
of 1,000 street parties.
Woolworths has identified 740 streets across the UK with Kate, Catherine or William
in their name, and is offering residents of these streets the free street-party pack
to enjoy the big day.
Woolworths.co.uk is predicting that outside of London, Yorkshire is expected to host
the highest number of street parties as it is home to 39 William and 14 Catherine
streets, closes, drives, avenues, terraces, lane and roads.
Other hotspots across the country have been identified as Liverpool (9xWilliam &
3xCatherine), Birmingham (6xWilliam and 1xCatherine) and Southampton (4xWilliam &
Woolworths is also putting a call out to the two William Streets and the one
Catherine Street in Hull to join in the celebrations, as the city is the least
likely to host a party, with the council there announcing that they have received no
applications for street parties to date.
Dan Rubel, head of family fun at Woolworths.co.uk, said: "Our research tell us that
those living on streets with a royal connection are most likely to throw a street
party on the date of the Royal Wedding.
"With the day already declared a Bank Holiday, we believe that the impending
nuptials of Prince William and Kate present the perfect opportunity to get together
and spend quality time celebrating with friends, family and neighbours. There seems
no better way to celebrate the marriage of new future King and Queen of England than
with a good old street party on every road boasting the names of the world famous
Royal couple; whether it's Kate Close or William Road."
Woolworths.co.uk is the home of family fun and as such has been helping to throw
parties for decades and so knows that the top priority for throwing a great street
celebration is to ensure that the guests invited have a great time.
