Coronation Celebrations to Get Involved in Across the North East and Yorkshire
Between The Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle, The Big Lunch and The Big Help Out, there are plenty of ways to get involved in this year's biggest occasion
THE CORONATION OF HIS MAJESTY THE KING
South Causey Inn, Stanley
The Coronation of His Majesty The King will take place on 6th May, conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Celebrate the occasion at South Causey Inn where the coronation will be played live on their big screen in the Old Barn and you’ll enjoy patriotic music from their talented brass band. You’ll be served fresh pastries with tea and coffee, followed by a traditional afternoon tea, and the bar will be open so you can raise a glass to the King , and celebrate in style.
CORONATION WEEKEND 2023
0191 370 4000
Head to Beamish for a 1950s-style celebration as they celebrate the coronation of King Charles III, and hop aboard their historic transport as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beamish Tramway. Keep an eye on their social media to find out more about what to expect from their special celebrations.
THE D-DAY DARLINGS: KING’S CORONATION TOUR
To celebrate the coronation the UK’s favourite wartime act (of Britain’s Got Talent fame), The D-Day Darlings, are on tour. Their brand new show is a song and dance for all generations, ending with an explosive patriotic finale.
THE RABY STATE COACH
THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Raby Castle, Staindrop
Raby Castle opened its gates for the 2023 season with a new addition to its entrance hall. In honour of the coronation, the Raby state coach (which dates back to the early 19th century and was used by the 9th Baron and Baroness Barnard to attend the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902), will be undergoing conservation throughout the year and will take pride of place in the hall. Raby Castle has seen plenty of royal visits over the centuries, so where better to celebrate?
CORONATION CRAFT & CREAM TEA
Yarn Etc, Harrogate
Make an Union Jack pin cushion and eat scones and cakes (and drink tea, obviously) to celebrate the King’s Coronation. You’ll use vintage beading, trim and felt to make a royally good cushion to take home.
CORONATION ROYAL RACE EVENING
Celebrate all things royal and British while enjoying live flat racing, a best-dressed competition and a disco to keep the party going.
YORK CORONATION BALL
Assembly Rooms, York
Hosted by His Majesty’s Sheriff of York, enjoy a sparkling wine reception under the chandeliers, before taking your seat at the banqueting table for a three-course dinner. Make a toast to the King before dancing the night away to the 20-piece Big Band 106. The Assembly Rooms could be the best location to celebrate, having previously played host to the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation Ball in 1953.
