Ealing residents are invited to come together with family, friends and neighbours to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla with a weekend of special events across the borough between 6 and 8 May. Events will be taking place at Walpole Park, Acton Park and Northala Fields.
With an extra bank holiday on Monday, 8 May, why not join in the festivities across the country? A great way for neighbours and communities to get to know each other and enjoy food, drinks and music.
Join the local celebrations on Saturday, 6 May at Walpole Park from 10.30am to 10pm. Tickets are free, but numbers are restricted and available on a first come first served basis. Reserve your tickets as soon as possible as demand is certain to be high.
The programme of events will have something for everyone and will reflect the fantastic cultural diversity of the borough. Events and activities for all the family will include:
- Live screening of the coronation, funded by the Greater London Assembly (GLA)
- ‘Sing for the King’ with choirs and an exciting mixture of world and local music
- Dine around the world with the best of Ealing’s street food traders
- Drinks and cocktails
- Live music
- Kids funfair rides
- The grand finale will be marked with fireworks at 9.45pm.
Don’t forget to bring a blanket for when the sun goes down.
Elsewhere in the borough, you can also join evening events at Acton Park and Northala Fields with food and drink and fireworks between 6pm and 10pm. There is no need to book tickets in advance, just turn up and enjoy the celebrations.
These events might not be suitable for dogs due to fireworks. Also, please consider leaving your car at home to ease parking congestion.
Ealing Council leader, Councillor Peter Mason commented: “The King’s coronation will be a special moment, and a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together.
“Communities had such a wonderful time celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee last year. I hope you will take advantage of the chance to do so again this year to mark this historic event.”
You can keep up to date with all information about events taking place across the borough on the council’s website.
Applications for coronation street parties have now closed with bumper numbers of residents taking advantage of Ealing Council’s decision to remove the fee to close roads and make up to £150 per street party available to help towards the costs. Just over 190 applications were received, so we know that many of you are already planning to celebrate with friends, families and neighbours on the weekend of the Coronation.
If you are having a street party, information, ideas and tips on activities and can be found on the official coronation website.
Send us the photos of your coronation celebrations to email@example.com using Coronation photos as the subject line and we will publish the best ones with your name.
