Tettenhall's Upper Green will be awash with red, white and blue when it hosts a special street party to mark the Queen's 90th birthday.

It is the location for the City of Wolverhampton Council's celebrations on Thursday 21 April, 2016, which will include the lighting of a special beacon - one of hundreds that will be lit across the nation on the day.

Visitors can also enjoy a fun fair, a variety of food stalls and entertainment from Dicky Dodd and Signal 107 roadshow. Youngsters will even get the chance to meet their TV hero Marshall from Paw Patrol, while the popular Line Dancing Queens will be showing off their skills for the crowds.

Councillor Ian Brookfield, Mayor of Wolverhampton, said: "Tettenhall Green is a great setting for people to get together and celebrate this significant date - the Queen's 90th birthday.

"We will also be joining hundreds of other communities up and down the country by lighting a beacon, part of an unbroken tradition of celebrating Royal jubilees, weddings, coronations and significant birthdays, the last of which was the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012."

The street party will take place at Upper Green, Tettenhall, from 5pm to 9pm on Thursday 21 April. Motorists are advised that Upper Green will be closed to traffic from 3pm on the day.
