South Molton gets ready to party like never before!

Major plans to celebrate the Royal Wedding in style

SOUTH Molton is gearing up to celebrate the Royal Wedding with a party to remember for years to come.

Preparations are well underway to make the event a real red letter day for the town with two giant television screens, live music, children’s entertainment and lashings of champagne and strawberry ice cream!

Billed as the biggest free all-day party the town has seen in years, the celebrations will be centred in and around the pannier market, from 10.30am until 4pm.

South Molton Rugby Club will be operating a licenced bar, while the Scouts will be running a soft drinks bar with a complimentary drink for each child, courtesy of the local Spar shop.

Trestle tables and chairs will be available, but groups are also invited to bring their own.

The event is being jointly arranged and financed by South Molton Business Association SMBA and South Molton Town Council.
