Britain’s Smallest Street Party

‘Colin The Cabbie’ turns his GetTaxi Cab into a ‘mobile’ Jubilee street party
A London black cab has been turned into a mobile street party especially for the Jubilee weekend. Colin ‘The Cabbie’ Sinclaire, has partnered with GetTaxi to make his cab THE party in between parties over the next few days. The tiny mobile street party has a brass band, bunting and a fold out table with sausage rolls, cucumber sarnies, scones and other jubilee treats.
Despite being a self-confessed royal fanatic and a street party aficionado, the current economic climate has left Colin with no choice but to work through the Jubilee weekend. Whilst venting his frustration to his wife Andrea, Colin came up with the perfect way not to miss out on the celebrations and decided to turn his cab into a mobile street party with the help of GetTaxi, the free taxi-ordering app.
GetTaxi loved the idea so much they’ve decked out a special Jubilee fleet of cabs with street party apparel, brass band music and free tasty treats over the Jubilee weekend. Passengers looking for the ultimate ‘party between parties’ can book one of the unique jubilee fleet exclusively through GetTaxi’s free app, which is available on iPhone, Android and Blackberry. Jubilee party animals simply need to download the app and book a GetTaxi cab with the word ‘Jubilee’ in the Message To Driver box.
Colin the Cabbie said: “I love celebrating a good British knees up, but I can’t afford not to work on the busiest weekend of the year. I didn’t want this to stop me from joining the fun, so I created what I’ve named ‘Britain’s smallest mobile street party’. The brass band may have been a bit OTT but the punters seem to love it! I was delighted that GetTaxi encouraged my crazy idea and have ended up getting more of their fleet to join in too. I was so depressed about having to work over the weekend, but now I’m throwing my own party!”
Neal Fullman, CEO of GetTaxi UK adds: “Our cabbies work hard all year round, but never more than over a bank holiday weekend. When Colin came to us with the idea of creating a mobile street party in his cab we wanted to do all we could to get behind him and are thrilled to be able to offer our drivers and taxi-goers a fun Jubilee-themed journey on this historic weekend. If ever there was an example of a GetTaxi driver going the extra mile for his passengers, our Colin is it!”
