Everything you Need to Know About the King's Coronation and How to Celebrate
To mark the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty the Queen Consort on Saturday May 6 2023, people across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth are being invited to celebrate with a series of special events to be held over the course of the Bank Holiday Coronation weekend.
How to Spend the Bank Holiday Coronation Weekend
There are many ways to get involved with celebrations over the course of three days, beginning with the Coronation Ceremony itself.
Take Part in the Coronation Big Lunch Party
One of the most exciting opportunities to get involved is to host a street party or a Coronation Big Lunch party.
What is the Coronation Big Lunch Party?
Big Lunches are held annually all across the UK, raising more than £22 million in 2022 alone for local charities. As part of the King's Coronation celebrations, people are invited to hold a special Coronation Big Lunch party to share food, fun and friendship and connect with others around them.
How to Host a Memorable Street Party:
Whether this is your first experience organising a large-scale celebration or you are looking for tips to ensure that your event goes off without a hitch, here are some things to keep in mind.
1. Set a Date
Official Coronation celebrations will occur over the entire Bank Holiday weekend, but you aren't limited to just those three days. The entire month of June is marked as the Month of Community, so you're free to select a date that works for everyone in your community.
3. Food, Glorious Food
You could ask everyone to bring their lunch to the celebration or encourage them to bring their favourite sweet or savoury dish. Either way, sharing should be encouraged as this is an ideal way to learn more about your neighbours and community.
4. Host a Fundraiser
Whether you want to raise money for a nationwide charity or have a community project in mind, the Big Lunch is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness and get other people on board.
