Street Party - Meet Your Neighbours in Your Traffic Free Street

About Streets Alive

Streets Alive promotes community spirit at the street level through street parties and other neighbourly activities. As a not-for-profit group since 2001 we have helped 1000s of residents, as well as community workers and councils to creatively support communities.

Street parties are a great part of British culture and have a long history. We hope to make them a widespread and regular feature of communities throughout the UK. With busy, more independent and less localised lives we have fewer chances to bump into people. And a street party right outside your door without traffic for a day is a good way to meet them all at once.

This website is about simple neighbours' street parties in 1 or 2 quiet residential streets without general publicity. Larger community public events in more streets require other arrangements according to their scale.

See our organisation website about other types of Meet My Street activities and our wider work.
