On May 6th, 2023, the world will witness a historic moment as His Majesty King Charles III ascends to the throne of the United Kingdom.
The coronation ceremony, which will take place at the iconic Westminster Abbey in London, will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The event will be a grand celebration of British tradition and culture, with dignitaries, politicians, and members of the royal family in attendance.

A variety of musical acts, buskers, and street performers will keep the crowds entertained during the screenings and into the afternoon. Visitors can also enjoy live music, maypole dancing, fancy dress competitions, face painting, and food stalls.
