Stafford College to host British street party event for Queen’s 90th birthday

Stafford College Earl Street Campus

Stafford College is to host a street party event at its summer open day to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday on Saturday 11 June from 11am – 2pm.

The event will take place at the college’s Earl Street campus and Palmbourne Technology site.

There will be a host of activities across the event including the broadcasting of the Trooping the Colour ceremony, live creative performances from students and an England vs Russia FIFA tournament to coincide with the first Euro 2016 match which is taking place later that evening.

There will also be a host of educational stalls throughout the courtyard looking at the changes in British industries during Her Majesty’s lifetime.

Projects from current students will also be on display to offer insight into studying full time, part time, community and higher education courses as well as apprenticeships at the college.

Traditional afternoon tea, ice creams and Pimms will be on sale to members of the public from catering teams at the college and beauty teams will be offering free treatments to attendees.

Ian Clinton, principal at Stafford College, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the local community to come down to the college and discover what we have on offer for this September.

“The Queen’s 90th is a significant milestone in British history and is well-worth celebrating together with the people of Stafford.

“We have a wide range of fun and interactive activities planned with our curriculum teams with afternoon tea and bunting at the ready.

“We’ve even got a contingency plan to move everyone inside our state-of-the-art library should the typical Great British weather decide to let us down on the day.”
