Chichester BID and Chichester Cathedral will be hosting an outside screening of the ceremony and parade on the Cathedral Green with free family activities, games and crafts
Coronation celebrations at Chichester Cathedral
Chichester BID and Chichester Cathedral are joining forces to spearhead the city centre’s celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6 May, supported by Chichester District Council. Following the success of Chichester’s Platinum Jubilee Picnic on the Cathedral Green, they will be creating another opportunity this year for families and friends to come together to mark this historic occasion.
The picturesque Chichester Cathedral Green will be the location for the celebrations 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.
It will take place in the morning and visitors are encouraged to bring a rug and a picnic or pick up a lunch from one of the many eateries in the city centre.
