You can find out more about the national Coronation celebrations on The Coronation website.

This is a significant event for our nation. On this page you will find more information about how Wychavon is supporting the celebrations.

In this section:

Parish and Town Council Coronation Fund

We are providing a £30,000 fund to parish and town councils across Wychavon to support celebrations over the Coronation Weekend. 

We will contact parish and town councils directly in the next few weeks to tell them how they can claim their share of the money. It will be up to town and parish councils to decide how to spend their allocation locally. If you have an idea for a local celebration then you are encouraged to contact your local town or parish council directly. 

Find your town or parish council.
