An extra bank holiday day will take place on Monday 8 May 2023 along with a series of national events aimed at celebrating the King’s Coronation from the 6 to 8 May 2023.

The Coronation of His Majesty, The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May, 2023.

Bridgend County Borough Council has produced a step-by-step guide to help residents who want to mark the occasion with a street party or other community celebration.

The street parties and non-commercial events on the highway webpage can be viewed on the council’s website.

Residents who intend to apply for a road closure for a street party event will need to obtain confirmation from all residents in the street in the form of a signature.

 

The Leader, Cllr Huw David, said: “Residents coming together to organise street parties marking royal or other national events are a British tradition.

“The King’s Coronation will offer communities throughout Bridgend County Borough an ideal opportunity to get together and hold a celebration with neighbours.

“To support this and ensure that people can mark the occasion safely, the council has developed this new resource to help residents and local communities to plan ahead.”
