PEOPLE looking to get away from the royal wedding are invited to a York pub – which is officially ignoring the event.

The Fulford Arms, in Fulford Road, is holding an anti-royal wedding party on the day, as part of its five-day beer festival which runs from April 28 to May 2.

There will even be a charity “swear box” for anyone caught discussing the wedding.

At the festival, there will be up to 25 real ales, Anglo-Norwegian food, live music and entertainment. Dogs and children are welcome in the beer garden, where there will be a barbecue and local craft stalls, art and face painting etc.
