The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May, 2023.
Buckingham Palace has announced the ceremonial, celebratory and community events that will take place over the Coronation Weekend between Saturday 6 and Monday 8 May 2023 including The Big Lunch and The Big Help Out.
It is hoped that the Coronation Weekend will provide an opportunity to spend time and celebrate with friends, families and communities and you can get involved in a number of ways.
This page will be updated as more plans are announced.
Register your interest in a Coronation mug
Coronation Communities - nominate your community!
The Council has a proud record of producing mugs for every Coronation and many residents expressed an interest in having a commemorative keepsake to mark this occasion.
The Council therefore offered Fareham residents the opportunity to purchase a special commemorative mug for just £4.
Mugs that were ordered prior to the deadline on 20 March are expected to be available close to the Coronation weekend, subject to production and delivery times. Residents will be notified once they arrive.
However, we cannot guarantee that we will receive the mugs before the King's Coronation.
Mugs can be collected from the Civic Offices in Fareham and payment will be taken upon collection.
It will not be possible to send mugs in the post and residents are required to collect their order from the Civic Offices, Fareham. If you are unable to collect these yourself, please nominate someone below to collect on your behalf.
If you'd like to hold your own street party please contact the Council beforehand to ensure your street is suitable. The deadline for applications to hold a street party for the Coronation is Friday 24 March.
You can find out how to hold your own street party and how to run a safe event here.
You can find useful information about holding a street party on the Government website.
The Street Party website also gives some good tips and advice.
Check out the Coronation toolkit which features templates, kids activities, recipes and playlists to help with your Coronation celebrations.
Neighbours and communities across the United Kingdom are invited to share food and fun together at Coronation Big Lunches on Sunday 7 May 2023. It will be overseen and organised by the Big Lunch team at the Eden Project.
You can find out more and download The Big Lunch Pack on their website.
The Big Help Out will be held on Monday, 8 May 2023 and is being organised by The Together Coalition and a wide range of partners. It will encourage people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being undertaken to support their local areas.
There will be opportunities for everyone to join in. No matter what you are good at, there'll be something to suit helping hands of all shapes and sizes! From checking in on someone who'd like a bit of company or volunteering for a charity the more of us who join in, the bigger help we will be.
Whether you are an individual, an organisation or a business, there is something for everyone. You can register your interest and find out more on their website.
The Eden Project are looking for those communities that go above and beyond to support those around them. From cul-de-sacs to blocks of flats, if your community deserves a great big 'thank you' then they want to hear from you!
The winning community will receive a pollinator and people friendly garden with the Eden Project team on hand to help with the installation. The prize will also include a Coronation Big Lunch hamper (including a £250 Iceland voucher) and £2,500 to support your next community project.
They'll also be celebrating 3 runners-up with a Coronation Big Lunch hamper (including a £100 Iceland voucher) and £1,000 towards a community project.
The competition runs from 1-30 March – all you need to do is tell them a little about your community and why you deserve to be crowned!
