The royal street party took place on Crosby Road, Bikdale, Southport, Sunday 13 September 2015.

The street party on Crosby Road was organised by Jonathan Cunningham, an expert at organising major events across Britain through his role as managing director of a Southport-based firm Storm Consultancy.

Queen Elizabeth took the throne on February 6, 1952, and has so far served her country in that role for an incredible 63 years and 217 days

Jonathan today said: we raised £842.29 for the lifeboat Trust. (After costs had been taken) STORM donated £300 to the Trust.


Held to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the longest reigning monarch in Britain’s history, Birkdale’s residents paid tribute to her majesty in style.
