Framlingham: Royal knees-up to celebrate wedding
IT will be an historic day that will see millions of people across the globe raising a glass to toast the happy couple.
And one Suffolk market town is already gearing up to commemorate this year’s Royal wedding in style.
The Framlingham Business Association is hosting a special day of entertainment to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The couple will tie the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29, which has been declared a Bank Holiday.
It is hoped hundreds of well-wishers will head to Framlingham’s Market Hill to watch the event live on a giant outdoor television screen.

Bill Bulstrode, chairman of Framlingham Business Association, said: “It will be a fantastic chance for the community to come together on what will be a very historic day.
“The business association was keen to mark the wedding in some way and we thought this would be ideal. It promises to be a great family day out and we hope that everyone comes and supports us, the more the merrier. It would be great to get visitors in from other places as well.
“The whole town will be decorated in bunting and with flags. It should look brilliant.”
