Details Emerge on Jubilee Celebrations in Battersea Park

Jubilee fever is heating up in England: Details have been announced for The Diamond Jubilee Festival in London's Battersea Park, which will reportedly celebrate design, music, art, film, fashion and food from the past 60 years. Tip: We hear Battersea Park is also a good vantage point to watch the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

A line-up of DJs headlined by Norman Jay and the Good Times Sound System will be appearing at the festival. On The Crown Stage, acts will include The Noisettes, The Selector, Fairey Acid Brass Band, Urban Soul Orchestra, The Boxzettes and Brassroots. On the 1952 Bandstand, The Bombshellettes, Paul Taylor’s Vintage Teadance Orchestra, The John Miller Orchestra, Paul Casper’s George Formby tribute and DJ Jeff Two-Tone Boogie will all appear.

Encourage your clients to check out a portrait of The Queen made out of 3,120 cakes. They can also enjoy a ride on the vintage steam fair, shop in the Right Royal Department Store, watch films in the open air cinema and learn to dance like it's 1952.

Tickets to the festivities can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
