Celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III

Sleaford Town Council are busy putting plans together and organising an exciting itinerary of events to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6th May 2023 and the Bank Holiday weekend.

Current plans include a large event at Boston Road Recreation Ground with a large screen on the grass to televise the Coronation, a fancy dress charity fun run, live music and entertainment with a headline act, stalls, food and drink, bouncy castles and inflatables, face painting, a walking procession which residents and visitors will be invited to take part in, a Farmers' Market in the Market Place, a showing of the Coronation in the Town Hall and events on Eastgate Green, including a charity duck race. Southgate will be adorned with Union Jacks and we will be holding a special shop and business Best Dressed Coronation Window Competition.

If you wish to have a trade pitch or food and drink pitch at the event, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please also contact us if you are a performer, singer or musician and would like to take part in this historic day.

There will also be a fruit, vegetable and flower competition and planting of a special tree in the Recreation Ground.

Residents may wish to hold a street party during the weekend of the Coronation and it is advised that applications are submitted as soon as possible.
