3 Royal Wedding parties that won’t make you feel like a raging monarchist


Sick to death of hearing about Meghan and Hazza’s ‘big day’ but still want an excuse to party? Steal their thunder at these Royal Wedding blow-outs

Deptford Cinema does the Royal Wedding

Escape the tirade of media coverage at Deptford Cinema’s cranky, anarchic film fest. Instead of the wittering wedding commentary, you can enjoy Derek Jarman’s 1978 film ‘Jubilee’ and music from local punks Tokyo Sex Wail. Deptford Cinema. Deptford Bridge DLR. Sat May 19. £6.

Right Royal Knees Up!

Forgive the unforgivable use of ‘right royal knees up’ with this day of Pimm’s, prosecco and drag. Watch the big event on big screens and play wedding bingo with a certain ginger ‘Spice Girl’ while listening to a playlist of true British bangers. The Book Club. Tube: Old St. Sat May 19. £5 on the door.

Night of a 1,000 Markles Party

Roll up, roll up for a chiliad of heartstopping Royal Wedding ball lewks. Multiple ‘Meghans’ will be sashaying through The Glory while alt-cabaret stars Baby Lame and Crystal Beth, plus tunes from Princess Julia, take you up the aisle. The Glory. Haggerston Overground. Sat May 19. Free before 10pm.
