Celebrating His Majesty King Charles III’s Coronation

15 February 2023

The Coronation Ceremony for His Majesty King Charles III will take place on Saturday 6 May 2023 at Westminster Abbey in London.

The Coronation will see people across the UK and the Commonwealth come together to celebrate. The Coronation programme will include the procession and service at Westminster Abbey on 6 May, the ‘Coronation Big Lunch’ across the country on 7 May (with a concert taking place in Windsor in the evening), and ‘The Big Help Out’ community activity on the bank holiday, Monday 8 May.

These plans are detailed further on the official announcement of the King’s Coronation weekend plans or on the Herefordshire Council website.

In Herefordshire, local community celebrations will be making this a momentous weekend in their own way. Whether it’s holding street parties, hosting a Big Lunch, or rolling up your sleeves to help a charity or group with the Big Help Out, there’s lots of ways to get involved.
