Marshall, star of TV's Paw Patrol, will be on hand to help Wolverhampton celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday at a street party for all the family in Tettenhall on Thursday evening (21 April, 2016).

Upper Green will be awash with red, white and blue when it hosts the free event, during which a special beacon will also be lit, part of a tradition of celebrating Royal jubilees, weddings, coronations and significant birthdays.

The street party takes place from 5pm to 9pm and visitors will be able to enjoy a fun fair, food stalls and entertainment courtesy of Dicky Dodd and the Signal 107 roadshow.

Younger visitors have the chance to meet Marshall, who will be making personal appearances at intervals between 5pm and 8pm, and there will also be music from Chris Carmell's New Vintage Jazz Band and the ever popular Line Dancing Queens. The beacon itself will be lit at 7.30pm.

The City of Wolverhampton Council is organising the event and Head of Visitor Economy Mark Blackstock said: "The street party in Tettenhall will be a great opportunity for people from all over Wolverhampton to get together and celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday.

"We've got a fantastic line up, including the Signal 107 roadshow, jazz music, line dancing and a fun fair, and we're delighted that Marshall from Paw Patrol will be there as we join hundreds of other communities up and down the country in lighting a beacon."

Entry to the street party is free. Motorists are advised that Upper Green will be closed to traffic from 3pm on the day.
