People urged to share Coronation celebration plans on digital map

The Coronation of King Charles III will take place on Saturday 6 May 2023.

The government wants people to share their plans to celebrate the King’s Coronation on a digital map set up to help others in the local community find out what is happening and get involved.

It comes as Prime Minister Rishi Sunak confirmed he will be hosting a Big Lunch at Downing Street, with community volunteers from across the country to be among the guests on Sunday May 7.

Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said: “We want everyone up and down the country to have the opportunity to get involved in the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort.

“Our interactive map will help you find activities, events and celebrations nearby.

“Whether you’re hosting a street party, planning a Big Lunch, a screening or an activity for the Big Help Out, we want to hear from you.

“This is a fantastic occasion to come together with friends, family and your local community to mark this historic moment.”

To celebrate the occasion, Dacorum is hosting a weekend of events in Gadebridge Park on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May.

On Saturday there will be a live screening of the Coronation, together with entertainment for all the family including arts and crafts, farm yard animals, face-painting, Smiths fairground, crazy golf and lots more. A range of food and drink will be available.

On Sunday there will be stalls in the park/Old Town high street, and a live screening in the park of the Coronation concert from Windsor plus films for all the family. Food and drink will be available.

There is a fund available for residents of Hertfordshire looking to hold parties.
