There will be street parties across Powys to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee

Celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee will come alive with traditional food, drinks, and plenty of song and dance.

Residents planning to celebrate the 70 year anniversary in the street were asked to submit a road closure application to the council - and all applications were approved.

During the celebrations, only 10 roads will be closed to traffic over the four-day weekend.

The council said: "We are delighted that so many celebrations will be taking place throughout the county and hope that this historic moment remains in peoples memories for years to come.

"To mark the Queen’s historic 70-year reign, the council have encouraged residents across Powys to celebrate their connections, get to know each other a little bit better and bring the jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community by hosting street parties and joining in with The Big Jubilee Lunch."
