Big Apple Brits have Royal Wedding Fever!

It's almost here, party people! Royal Wedding fever is upon us on both sides of the pond, and we expats couldn't let the big event pass by unnoticed. On Friday, April 29th 2011 long-time friends of MTG and expat community group extraordinaire Big Apple Brits will present a daylong celebration of the biggest event to hit the royal calendar in years. And when we say daylong, we mean daylong!

Beginning at 5am head on over to DUMBO in Brooklyn to watch Will and Kate tie the knot on a massive screen under the Manhattan Bridge! Big Apple Brits have teamed up with DUMBO Improvement District to provide the screen and a fantastic sound system and will broadcast the happy occasion live for die hards at "obscenely early o' clock", with the whole thing repeated for those of you not on Greenwich Meantime later on in the afternoon. Hundreds of revelers are expected, and these fabulous outdoor activities are completely FREE to attend!

After the ceremony Big Apple Brits will throw a reception for the newlyweds right around the corner at The Dumbo Loft which, in true British fashion, will run into the wee small hours. MTG troupes will be out in force to raise a glass (or three!) to the Prince and Princess and we'd love to see you there.

WHERE: Under the Manhattan Bridge, DUMBO, Brooklyn NY - from 5am
