A ‘ROYAL PREMIER’ will be heading to a North Wales town as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebratory weekend.
With the whole country coming together to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, Rhyl Town Council will host its own day of free activities, crowned with lookalikes, fun and games and some ‘bubbly’ visitors.

Royal Rhyl will be held on Saturday June 4 on the town’s high street and includes a first-time visit from an historical regal guest, royal-themed crafts and activities, and traditional seaside activities. The highlight of the day-long event will be a visit from the Sol Cinema, the world’s smallest picture house, powered entirely by the sun.

A Glastonbury Festival favourite, despite its small stature, the Sol Cinema draws big crowds wherever it goes.

Town Council clerk Gareth Nickels said: “Up and down the land, people will be celebrating the Queen’s achievement as Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.  Rhyl will be no different with a day of fun-filled free family entertainment to mark the historic occasion.

 “There are lots of laughs in store with old-fashioned funfair stalls, a bubbleologist, the charming Sol Cinema with its quirky films, and a visit from a regal figure from way back just some of the things residents and visitors can look forward to.”
Alongside the games, children will be able to make their own crowns, free face painting will be on offer and the Sussex Street Christian Centre will be providing badge making and running a project to create a poem to commemorate the special weekend. Children who come dressed as a prince or princess will be given a prize.

Paul O’Connor, co-founder of the Sol Cinema, said: “We love coming to North Wales and are always made to feel very welcome. We are delighted to be invited to take part in this special weekend; we look forward to opening the cinema doors and ushering in guests for what is set to be a very regal Rhyl day.”

Royal Rhyl will be held on Rhyl high street between 11am-4pm on Saturday June 4.
