Bank Holiday fun
The May Bank Holiday marked the Royal Wedding and my final days of leisure before starting my new job.
On Friday, after watching the Royal Wedding and admiring the dress (although I was wholly more taken with the page boy costumes if I’m totally honest – I loved the Disney-esq grandeur,) my friends and I dressed hot to trot in 1940s gear and attended the Northern Quarter Street Party in Manchester. I even wore my fringe in a victory curl on my forehead (although you can’t really see it here.)
The whole event was themed to reflect the decade, and there were heaps of people who turned out in fancy dress. There was even a 1940s military jeep and a British bulldog with a Union Jack flag tied around his neck.
We danced, drank Pimms and had our photographs taken in front of an antique ice cream van for the Independent on Sunday (I’ll scan the page if it makes the feature.)
The Mayor of Manchester even complimented my friend on her hat!
