Alongside Henley, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, there’s another event that stands out on the social calendar, the Motcomb Street Party. Reported to be the biggest collection of red trousers in Western Europe, the Motcomb Street Party is a street party like no other. A sort of cross between VE Day and Flashdance.
This year the action happens on Wednesday 12th June, and proceedings will kick off with a 5:30 disco before a celebrity officially opens the party (last year it was Britain’s Got Talent winner and amateur magician Corporal Ricahrd Jones from the Household Cavalry), and a programme of some of the best looalike-ie tribute acts about, alongside an auction.
But we’re not just going to be there for the Rod Stewart act, the vibe s always warm, fun, celeb studded and seriously hectic. And despite being in the centre of Belgravia, it’s also something of a social leveller.
Clear your diaries and get ready for The Motcomb Street Party one of the best parties (and worst websites) in town.
