The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May, 2023. Coronation logo - a blue crown on red flowers with the words King Charles III Coronation 6th May 2023 surrounding it.

The following day the Coronation Big Lunch takes place where neighbours and communities are invited to share food and fun together.

On the evening a special Coronation Concert will be broadcast live from Windsor Castle.

On Monday 8 May, the public are being urged to take part in The Big Help Out by volunteering or joining projects to support their local area.

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.

Street parties and road closures

We are supporting the Coronation Weekend celebrations by scrapping road closure notice fees for events held to celebrate the Coronation. Not all street parties will need a road closure notice. 

Find out more about street parties and how to apply for a road closure.

All road closure notice applications for street parties being held over the Coronation Weekend need to be submitted by 20 March 2023.

Register your Coronation event

If you are planning a street party or event that the public are welcome to attend then let us know about it. You can also register your event on the national Coronation website.

Register your Big Help Out volunteering opportunity

Monday May 8 is the Big Help Out - your chance to roll up your sleeves and help a local group or charity in your area. 

If you are a charity or community group in Wychavon with a volunteering opportunity then register it with us and we will help to promote it locally. 

We will list volunteering opportunities on this page.
