King’s Coronation

The King’s Coronation will take place on Saturday 6 May, with ceremonial, celebratory & community events taking place nationally over the weekend & on Bank Holiday Monday 8 May. Across the weekend, there will be further opportunities national for people to come together in celebration of the historic occasion, with a Coronation Concert from Windsor Castle on Sunday 7 May & on the same day, a ‘Coronation Big Lunch’, where neighbours & communities are encouraged to organise street parties to share food & fun, followed on Monday 8 May by ‘The Big Help Out’, which will encourage people to try volunteering for themselves & join the work being done to support their local areas.

The Town Council will be providing Coronation memorabilia for the area’s school children & supporting Flimby & Maryport schools in their development of activities & events in commemoration of the event. It has also established a working party to develop arrangements to support the Coronation in the area.
