The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May 2023.

On Sunday 7 May, a special Coronation Concert will be staged and broadcast live at Windsor Castle by the BBC and BBC Studios. The Coronation Big Lunch, at which neighbours and communities are invited to share food and fun together, will take place across the country on the same date.

On Monday 8 May members of the public will be invited to take part in The Big Help Out, which will encourage people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being undertaken to support their local areas.

Full details of the weekend of national celebration can be found on the Royal website's Coronation Weekend Plans page.

We are finalising a programme of events and activities to mark this historic occasion.

Council’s Coronation Working Group is meeting regularly to plan and deliver local activities and celebrations.

The group consists of Chair Cllr Cheryl Brownlee, Cllr Matthew Armstrong, Cllr Keith Turner, Cllr William McCaughey, Cllr Gregg McKeen and Cllr Lauren Gray.

Further details regarding Coronation plans locally will be announced soon, including the availability of community grants for local groups to host their own events.
