Event cel­e­brates the Best of Bri­tish

Central Leader - - NEWS -

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 three­day 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 on of­fer.

Kids can get their faces painted or take part in the Fa­mous Five- themed shops.

A Mad Hat­ter’s tea party will be held on Sun­day while a free show­ing of the 1951 an­i­mated ver­sion of Alice in Won­der­land screens.

The Best of Bri­tish will run from 9am to 5pm from June 1 to 3. En­try is free.
