Harrogate BID (Business Improvement District) is all set to host a fun-filled family celebration event to mark the coronation of King Charles III.
Taking place on the 6th and 7th of May at Harrogate’s DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa, in partnership with Your Harrogate, it is hoped the event will attract families and friends to come along, pitch up their picnic blankets and deckchairs, and enjoy the right ‘royal’ affair.
A stage and screen will be the focal point, where residents and visitors alike can watch the run up to the big day, and the coronation ceremony itself. Entertainment will also be on offer, including the chance to win prizes – as well as music from well-known local DJ Mark Green on the Sunday. It is free to attend, and food and drinks will be available to purchase from the hotel.
Matthew Chapman, BID Manager, comments: “We are delighted to be hosting this event at the DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa. The coronation will be a joyous occasion – it gives people the chance to come together and enjoy some fun, whilst celebrating.
“The hotel is the perfect venue for the event, with plenty of room in the grounds for local residents to watch the official proceedings on a huge screen, with a great atmosphere to boot.”
Andrew Glover, General Manager of the hotel, adds: “We look forward to working with Harrogate BID to host families and friends in the region to celebrate this royal occasion.”
The BID is encouraging people to just come along. There is no need to register to do so, residents can just turn up on the 6th and 7th from midday. More details about the event timings will be announced when we know more about the official ceremonial timings.
