Residents across Ealing’s seven towns of Acton, Ealing, Greenford, Hanwell, Northolt, Perivale and Southall are joining the nation today (6 May 2023) with street parties and community events taking place to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
Bunting will be out, cakes will be eaten and roads will be closed to allow residents to enjoy the day. With predictions of rain, umbrellas will also likely be on display but organisers of street parties say the weather won’t put them off celebrating the day in style.
To help residents organise a street party for King Charles III Coronation, Ealing Council like many other councils removed the fee to close roads. It has also offered up to £150 per street for organising a party. While, not all local councils are offering any contribution towards putting on a street party, neighbouring borough Hounslow offered up to £500 per street for a party in its borough.
