Celebration & Screening of the Coronation of King Charles III

We're joining forces with Chichester BID to spearhead the city centre’s celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6th May, supported by Chichester District Council.

All are welcome to come together to mark this historic occasion on the picturesque Cathedral Green where a large outdoor screen will broadcast the Coronation Parade and Ceremony live. Deck chairs will be set out for people to gather for picnics whilst watching the proceedings and there will be themed arts, crafts, games and face painting for children to enjoy.  

The main streets of the city centre will be adorned with a mixture of Union flags and specially designed Coronation flags created by local school children, while the side streets will be decorated with colourful bunting. 

While an exact time of the coronation has not yet been given, it has been announced that it will take place in the morning. Visitors are encouraged to bring a rug and a picnic or pick up a delicious lunch from one of the many wonderful eateries in the city centre.

Other events taking place this spring, include a free Easter Trail that will run from 1st - 16th April. The trail promises to be an exciting and engaging way for visitors to explore the city and be in with a chance of winning a fabulous Easter Hamper containing a bounty of delights kindly donated by the businesses participating in the trail.
