A popular pub in Ipswich is throwing a Brexit-themed party on Friday night.
The Kingfisher pub, in Hawthorn Drive in the Chantry area, will be decorated in Union Jack flags, red, white and blue flags and balloons to mark the occasion.
Landlady Penny Youngs-Debnam said: "I am a supporter of Brexit and I also feel this is a major historic event for England."
She added: "We have a DJ in playing songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s, RnB hip-hop and garage. I am also doing a bar buffet.
"We will be counting down the final moments up till 11pm which is when we come out."

However, while some people in Ipswich are celebrating, others will be marking the occasion with a candle-lit vigil on the Cornhill at 11pm, organised by the People's Vote campaign in the town.
The group says there will be no speeches or protest banners and is asking people to simply light candles to put on the steps of the Town Hall.
