The upcoming coronation of King Charles III and the Queen Consort will see celebrations across London and the whole country. Hooper's Estate Agents are proud to bring you details of festivities taking place across our local area in Brent and the wider area.
Before the weekend of celebrations kicks off, the Brent Culture Service will be running a free concert called Music For The Coronation at The Library at Willesden Green (95 High Road, London, NW10 2SF) on Wednesday 3 May between 12:00 - 12:45. It will feature a string quartet from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing music from Handel, Bach and Vaughan Williams.
The highlight of the weekend will be the coronation ceremony itself, which takes place on Saturday 6 May. To coincide with the occasion, Wembley Park (Olympic Way, Wembley Park, London, HA9 0FR) will be running a coronation celebration between 10am and 4pm. Visitors will be able to enjoy the ceremony on deck chairs from a giant screen positioned in front of the national stadium, with live entertainers a food market and a family zone.
Across the coronation weekend, there will be further opportunities for people to come together in celebration. On Sunday 7 May, a special Coronation Concert will be staged and broadcast live at Windsor Castle by the BBC. The Coronation Big Lunch, at which neighbours and communities are invited to share fun and food together, will take place on the same day. You can find details of local events taking place at www.thebiglunch.com.
On Monday 8 May comes The Big Help Out, which will encourage people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being undertaken to support their local areas. On the same day, the City of London Corporation and Barnet Council are running a coronation event in Golder's Hill Park (West Heath Avenue, London, NW11 7QP). Taking place between 13:00 and 21:00, there promises to be some fantastic performers on the bandstand, a range of food stalls and arts and crafts for sale. The event will culminate in a light show around the bandstand between 20:30 and 21:00.
