Event celebrates the Best of Britain
BEST OF BRITISH HIGHLIGHTS
A smorgasbord of all things British will be on show this Queen’s Birthday Weekend at the aptly-named Queen’s Wharf.
From high tea to shortbread, Morris dancers to Highland pipers – all of the best bits the Brits have to offer are set to invade The Cloud in the three-day event.
Classic and brand new British cars will be on display throughout the weekend.
But if a spot of croquet or table tennis is more your style then grab a mallet or paddle and try your hand at one of the games.
Kids can get their faces painted or take part in the Famous Five- themed children’s workshops.
