Coronation Celebration

Coronation event - Sunday 7 May 2023 - 1.00pm - 5.00pm

Loddon & Chedgrave will be celebrating the Coronation with the spectacular Loddon & Chedgrave Coronation Celebration on Sunday 7 May 2023, 1.00pm - 5.00pm.

Church Plain will have a marquee and outside bar with live music, with performances organised by Shaft Of Wit Comedy; Discord & Rhyme, Chet Valley Voices, Nigel boy Syer, Matthew Harris and Martin Sisley, the Mod One! The raffle, Freedom of Loddon award and winners of the best dressed house and business will be announced at 4.00pm. There will also be several food sellers. The Church Plain Car Park will be closed during the event.

The Staithe will have a free fun bus for the kids, the medieval replica boat, and there will be various food and drink vendors including the Green Bean Machine. The Staithe Car Park will be closed during the event.

In the Hollies Front Hall, we will be having a free circus Workshop for the kids. Access will be restricted to 20 children in the hall at one time, so there may be a queue, although as one child departs, another can enter, so the queue should move swiftly.

In the Hollies Rear Hall, there will be face painting by Shimmer & Shine Parties and sweets being sold by Bee Sweet. There will be free colouring in with coronation colour-in window decorations and free cupcake decorating.

The fete games will include;

- Teddy Tombola

- Guess how many sweets in the jar

- Guess where the treasure is hidden

- lucky lollies

Holy Trinity will have an open house and delicious refreshments.

St John's Chapel will have an excellent selection of stalls.

Many of local establishments will be open. To date we have been informed that The JubHub will be having a BBQ and performer, Loddon Tennis Club will be having a treasure hunt, and The Angel Inn Loddon will have the The Lowestoft Longshoremen performing at 6.00pm.

If any other local businesses are running entertainment on the day, we would love to know so we can advertise it.

Car parking has been organised at the Hobart High School Sports Hall Car Park and the Chet Valley Medical Practice Car Park.

Loddon Parish Council look forward to welcoming you on the day and hope you will join us to celebrate the King's Coronation.

We will be also encouraging local businesses and houses to dress their properties for the Coronation. Prizes will be awarded for the best. The Council will decorate Church Plain!
