Kibworth landlord turns pub into boat for Jubilee
A landlord in Leicestershire has turned his pub into a ship to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Andrew Southerden has transformed the Coach and Horses in Kibworth into the HMS Coach and Horses.
He said: "We've been praised for the amount of detail with the lifeboats and portholes, I must say it looks stunning."
The pub will be officially "launched" on 3 June, the same day as the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
The 49-year-old, who has been running the pub since September 2008 with his wife Beverley, said: "After the success of the street party we had for the royal wedding last year, we got to thinking how we could top that for the Jubilee.
"We had 70 tables last year, competitions, fancy dress, and it was such good fun.
"So when I heard about the pageant on the River Thames I thought 'well, why don't we have a Kibworth regatta?'"
More than 1,000 boats of all shapes and sizes are due to make up the flotilla to celebrate 60 years of the Queen's reign during the pageant.
