Kings Charles III Coronation Emblem

Stevenage will join towns and cities around the country in celebrating his Majesty King Charles III being crowned alongside the Queens Consort.

Celebrating the Coronation

The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May 2023. The Service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Service will reflect the Monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.

The Government has published the King’s Coronation Website, including an interactive map which will display all the events and activities that will be taking place right across the UK.

The map is open for anyone to add their event and everyone is encouraged to upload any events and activities they may be planning to mark the Coronation.
