Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III

On Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May 2023 we celebrated the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III with free events in Gadebridge Park.

Despite the wet weather, many people braved the rain to watch live coverage of the Coronation on our big screen, and to enjoy the free activities on offer, including face painting, arts and crafts and our mini petting zoo. Our interactive entertainers, including a stilt walker and balloon modeller, also helped keep everyone’s spirits up.

On Sunday, the sun made a welcome appearance in time for the opening of Hemel Old Town Market. In the afternoon, many people joined us in the park to watch Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again on our big screen, followed by the Coronation Concert from Windsor Castle.
