The Olympics! The Queen’s Jubilee! Think union jacks, bunting and plenty of tea – London really is the place to be. Even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Hollywood power-couple extraordinaire, have given London their seal of approval with not one, but two proudly British bashes.
Every year, the engaged duo throw an annual Midsummer Night party based on a theme around a specific country and this year London is the spot for their shindig.
“Brad and Ange hold a Midsummer party every year and always base the theme around a specific country because it’s a great learning opportunity for the kids,” said a source. The pair and their six children are going all out with the Jubilee and the Queen’s birthday to get them into the spirit of things. “It’ll be like a British fet, with all the traditional games and cream teas in the garden in the afternoon.”
And true to royal festivities, the party is sure to see a number of famous faces. A-listers who have topped the guest list include world-class chef, Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools as well as actor George Clooney and his current girlfriend, Stacy Keibler.
But the partying doesn’t stop there – Brad and Ang are also hosting their own Olympic ceremony party two days before the official one. The charity event will be held at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum in honour of boxing legend Muhammad Ali and the guest list reportedly includes Princes William and Kate Middleton, David and Victoria Beckham, Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Definitely the hottest part ticket around!
