Dorset Council is encouraging local people to organise celebrations to mark the Coronation of HM Charles III and HM The Queen Consort on Saturday 6 May.
The Coronation Big Lunch, where neighbours and communities are invited to share food and fun together, will take place across the country between Saturday 6 and Monday 8 May.
If you’re planning a street party, you will need to apply for a temporary road closure – and there will be no charge. See the road closure page on the council website.
The official website – https://coronation.gov.uk/share-event/ – also has an interactive map which will display all the events and activities that will be taking place in Dorset as well as the rest of UK. You can find out about local events and add details of your own to the site.
Town and parish councils across Dorset will also be organising events.
Cllr Val Pothecary, chairman of Dorset Council, said: “The Coronation of King Charles III is going to be a very special national event, and we want as many people as possible to take part in the celebrations.
“As well as the formal and organised community events that will be taking place, we’re encouraging people to get into the spirit of the occasion and put on their own local events – it could be as simple as inviting your family and friends for a party in the garden, or a larger community event such as a street party for the neighbourhood.”
If you would like to join in with celebrating this historic occasion and organise your own ‘Big Lunch’ you can sign up on https://www.edenprojectcommunities.com/the-big-lunch to receive your Coronation Big lunch pack.
