Trestle tables will line Wokingham town centre’s streets on Sunday for the big jubilee lunch, which follows a procession by REME soldiers from Arborfield Garrison, starting from Broad Street at 9am.

The town centre celebrations, which have been organised by Wokingham Town Council working with the More Arts Wokingham Cultural Partnership, will get started in style on Saturday with a Jubilee Chorus Concert at Elms Field at 7.45pm. A big lunch will take place in the town centre on Sunday at midday following a parade by REME soldiers.

Elsewhere in the rest of the borough, dozens of street parties and parish events are planned.

The usual street party fees have been waived by Wokingham Borough Council for celebrations between Saturday and Tuesday.
