A giant television screen will be placed in the grounds of one of Mid Wales's most popular attractions as part of celebrations to mark the royal wedding.

As well as allowing visitors to watch the event unfold, Powis Castle in Welshpool will hold a day-long garden party on April 29 to mark the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The free event is being jointly organised by the National Trust and Welshpool Town Council.

Anna Orton, a spokeswoman for Powis Castle, said: "We are working with the town council to host a royal wedding garden party on April 29.

"Entry to the castle and its garden will be free and everyone will be able to view the wedding on a giant screen that we are hiring specially for the occasion.

"We want it to be one of those days that people will always remember not only because of the wedding but also because of where they saw it.

"We are looking into competitions for all ages, local community groups will be invited, there will be a bar and food or people can bring their own picnics.

"We want it to be a real community event," she added.

Robert Robinson, Welshpool town clerk, said the council was pleased to have been asked to get involved in such a special event.
