Brilliant Banwell - here's how you Jubilee!

jubilee 98

Our friends who live in Banwell, saved us today, from missing out on the best children's party we have ever been to! A ticketed affair, organised by a charitable group in Banwell, which was geared completely for children. (With the exception of the cider on tap, that my husband enjoyed a little too much of to be called a responsible parent!) We only got our tickets 20 hours before the event and they were among the last 4 for sale! We had had it on the calendar for weeks but as a non school going mummy I hadn't realised you had to buy tickets in advance! Thank goodness for our friends who put in a good word with the organiser!

£1 a child and they received a union jack party box bursting with every kind of party food under the sun (of which there was none, it pelted down all afternoon), a flag, a hat and a commemorative mug and cake! There was free face painting, a puppeteer and a magician, whose tricks must have been made in the 60's, but were perfect for the little, wide eyed audience.

The bouncy castles and games on the field had to be cancelled, but to be honest it didn't spoil a thing!

There was a fancy dress competition, scroll down to see who won!

There was everything you could want from a perfect British party, including jelly and ice cream by the bucket load!

They even managed to get the actual Olympic torch!

The Queen and Prince Philip made a grand entrance in a red plastic carriage!

Well done to all the organisers, who I am sure are elated and exhausted tonight!
