The Royal Wedding - Are You Making An Occassion of It?

With Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding on the horizon and a bonus bank holiday available, I just wondered how much interest there is in it at the moment and if anyone has any exciting plans?  I'm guessing there will be some good things going on in Windsor to mark the occassion but have you heard of anything going on elsewhere?
