Bakers and Elizabeths needed to make Hollloway Arts Festival a right royal knees-up
Talented bakers and people called Elizabeth are needed to join a festival on Diamond Jubilee weekend.
Organisers of the Holloway Arts Festival from June 1-10 want as many people with the same name as the Queen to get involved with a theatrical tea party on June 2.
Elizabeths, Bettys, Liz, Lisbeths and the odd Philip are invited for celebratory tea and cake, while stalls, live music and performances from comedian Liz Bently provide the entertainment.
Katy Baird, a festival committee member, said: “We invited the Queen but she can’t make it.
“I’m sure it will still be a right royal knees-up.”
