Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going to their local Diamond Jubilee street party in Richmond.
The couple and their six children are currently residing in the UK while the actress works on Maleficent and are said to have purchased tickets – which cost £3 each – for a bash near their temporary home on Saturday (02.06.12) to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne.
A source close to the planning committee of the Ham & Petersham Jubilee Tea Party said: “Brad and Angelina are aware of the celebrations. They have had information sent to them and shown an interest.”
Another source said: “Brad and Angelina love England and have been made to feel very welcome in Richmond. They want to fully embrace the Jubilee celebrations. The kids are very excited.”
The event will include a father-and-son tug of war competition, a cricket match, face painting, children’s football game and a cake baking contest and local residents are hoping the showbiz couple will join in the fun.
Organiser Emma Gibbons told Grazia magazine: “This whole event is very much a community-driven one. We’d be delighted if Brad and Angelina came.
“As a community, we are perfectly happy for them to join in and be here. They are not the only high-profile people living here.”
