Local residents advised to finalise plans for His Majesty The King's Coronation

With the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort days away, Wiltshire Council is encouraging residents to finalise their celebration plans.

A momentous weekend of nationwide activities is being planned, and people are being invited to take part in their own Coronation Big Lunch over the May bank holiday weekend (6-8 May). An idea first started by the Eden Project, the idea is to meet others and have fun together over food, whether it's a full-blown street party, a picnic or a small gathering over a cup of tea.

There will also be the opportunity to celebrate the Coronation weekend by viewing or taking part in various national events that will take place over the extended Bank Holiday weekend.

The national celebration events include:

  • The Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle on Sunday 7 May
  • The Coronation Big Lunch, on Sunday 7 May
  • The Big Help Out, on Monday 8 May
