BBC Hairy Bikers to join the Crosby Road Street Party, 12 June 2016

THE BBC will film the Crosby Road Queens 90th Birthday Celebration Street Party, on 12 June 2016. As part of their 2016 Hairy Biker Series the famous duo will be exploring the relationship people have with our well loved eggs and chickens. They will follow a global journey of culinary discovery with the final programme of the series concluding in Crosby Road as part of one of the most Royal Streets in the UK. Crosby Road has been proudly chosen due to its reputation of delivering possibly the best street party in the land. Its YouTube and social media presence encouraged the BBC researchers to shortlist their options to include Crosby Road. The site meeting, on Thursday, secured the Hairy Bikers into the Birkdale based street party on the 12 June 2016.

The BBC will film the build of this amazing community event, tables, bunting, flags etc. Then the plan is that the Hairy Bikers on their bikes will arrive mid afternoon and take an active part in this iconic UK Royal Street Party. They will relax with families, soak up this typically British tradition and of course sample peoples' cake and food and chicken sandwiches! The episode will end their inspiring global journey of 'eggs and chicken' and provide a suitable heart warming 'feel good' conclusion to their programme series.

Joanne and Jonathan Cunningham Street Party organiser said:- 'We are delighted, we love watching the Hairy Bikers. The BBC Production Team couldn't believe how passionate this event is to Crosby Road. The fact that this will be our 4th large scale event has established Crosby Road as one of the most Royal Roads and communities in the UK!!!'

The event hosted by Sandgrounder Radio with Neil Newton and Andrew Hibert will be raising vital funds for Southport's Independent Lifeboat Trust. Adults £5, children FREE. If you would like to be involved with this event then you must pre-book your tickets to obtain your wrist bands. It is highly unlikely you will be able to turn up on the day due to the numbers expected. If you would like to attend please contact dawn on:- 01704 320 008 or email   God save the Queen!
