Hammersmith & Fulham is celebrating King Charles III’s Coronation with a whole weekend of family fun.
On Saturday 6 May we’re hosting the King Street Coronation Party in Lyric Square and along King Street, Hammersmith.
On Sunday 7 May H&F is throwing two Big Coronation Lunches. One in Bishops Park, Fulham, and one in Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith.
All our Coronation events are free for everyone to attend.
King Street Coronation Party
To kickstart the weekend, join us on Saturday for the biggest party in town – the King Street Coronation Party, 11am to 6pm.
The pedestrianised road will be filled with more than 100 stalls selling art, plants, home décor, food from around the world and more.
That’s not all. We’ve also got a Mad Hatters tea party and a crown making workshop, as well as live music and dancing throughout the day.
And don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled while browsing the stalls for Elizabeth I, grumpy Queen Victoria, some pompous footmen and, of course, the cavalry.
To top it off we’re showing the Coronation from start to finish on a big screen in Lyric Square.
Party in our parks
On Sunday 7 May, we’ll be continuing the fun in Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith, and Bishops Park, Fulham with our Big Coronation Lunches. Each celebration is running from 12pm to late.
The family fun doesn’t stop there. From giant board games and drone flying with Urban Flyers, to sport sessions with Fulham Football Club and martial arts with Reflect CKD. There’ll be something for everyone.
Live entertainment will take place throughout the day, including dance workshops and the Fulham Brass Band.
In Ravenscourt Park, the youngest Coronation fans can enjoy pony rides, crown making with Kite Studios, face paint, games and more.
And for older visitors there’s sports sessions with QPR Football Club, giant Jenga, martial arts with Reflect CKD and drones to fly with Urban Flyers.
Soundtracking your afternoon of food and fun is Bunny Nightingale and the Ukrainian Choir performing live on stage throughout the day.
For any four-legged Coronation fans, there’s also a natural dog treats stand – selling everything from rabbit ears to braided beef gullet.
We’ll be showing the Coronation Concert in both parks on big screens.
Food fit for a King
Also on offer will be tasty delights from Urban Food Fest, including Mexican tacos and burritos, wood-fire pizzas, gourmet burgers, hotdogs, toasted sandwiches and steak and chips.
For those looking for a sweet treat, keep your eyes peels for their gelato, cake and cookie stands.
And to quench your thirst, there’s a vintage bar selling beers, cocktails, gin and Pimm’s which will stay open throughout the concert.
