Saturday 6 May - The Coronation will take place in the morning at Westminster Abbey, London.

Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort will arrive at Westminster Abbey in procession from Buckingham Palace, known as ‘The King’s Procession’ and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

After the Service, Their Majesties will return to Buckingham Palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as ‘The Coronation Procession’. 

At Buckingham Palace, The King and The Queen Consort, accompanied by Members of the Royal Family, will appear on the balcony to conclude the day’s ceremonial events.


Sunday 7 May - a special Coronation Concert will be staged and broadcast live at Windsor Castle by the BBC and BBC Studios, with several thousand pairs of tickets to be made available via public ballot. One of the highlights of the concert will be ‘Lighting up the Nation’ in which iconic locations across the UK will be lit up using projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations.
Throughout the UK, Coronation Big Lunches will bring neighbours and communities together to share friendship, food and fun.

Monday 8 May - Members of the public will be invited to take part in The Big Help Out, which will encourage people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being undertaken to support their local areas. 

Martin Flashman & Co hope you enjoy the weekend in whatever you choose to do and that the weather shines down on King Charles III.
