Coronation Events

If you are planning on hosting a coronation event please remember to follow the guidance from the council which can be found below at Hampshire County Council or New Forest District Council. We will be announcing shortly what our plans are for the Coronation weekend so keep your eyes peeled.

Road Closures

Now the themes of 6–8 May weekend have been announced, and The Big Lunch is a focus for Saturday 7 May, local communities will start to organise street parties, and road closures will undoubtedly be a feature for some of these events, as will erecting bunting.

Hampshire County Council are planning initial communications this month to remind residents of the need to apply for temporary road closure licenses via their local council as soon as possible.

Official Emblem

The official emblem of the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort has been unveiled by Buckingham Palace. The emblem has been designed by Sir Jony Ive KBE.

The emblem will feature throughout the celebrations in May, including the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey and the Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle on Saturday 6 May, as well as national events, street parties and community gatherings. The emblem will also be used for all official merchandise commemorating the Coronation of The King and The Queen Consort, and across digital and social media.

Councils are encouraged to share this information as appropriate.
