Coronation 2023


The Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III takes place on Saturday 6 May 2023.

Monday 8 May 2023 has been declared a Bank Holiday to mark the occasion.

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

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.

​Woolaston Parish Council and Woolaston Memorial Hall Committee are delighted to be working together to organise a special event to mark this historic occasion!

The Coronation weekend is a great opportunity for friends and neighbours to get together.

Celebration bunting will be put up around the Parish to mark the occasion.  Residents are also encouraged to decorate their own houses.  Prizes will be given to the best display.

We expect most people will enjoy watching the televised ceremony on Saturday, however “Woolaston’s Wonderful Coronation Celebration” will be held at Woolaston Memorial Hall from Noon to 3pm on Sunday 7 May with a “Bring your Own” Coronation Picnic Lunch
