Broadstairs and St Peter’s Town Council is working with partners across the town to provide a weekend of community events to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.
The coronation of Charles III and his wife Camilla as King and Queen is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 6 May at Westminster Abbey. The Monday has been declared a Bank Holiday.
Charles acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Victoria Gardens on Broadstairs seafront will play host to a range of entertainments for all the family from Saturday, May 6 to Monday, May 8 and will include a fireworks display on the opening evening.
Town Mayor Cllr Roy Dexter said: “We are excited to be working with so many partners to bring a weekend of music and fun across the Bank Holiday weekend, kicking off with a fireworks extravaganza on Saturday night.
“Plans for the rest of the weekend are well underway and details will be released soon. Please keep an eye on Broadstairs and St Peter’s Town Council’s social media pages and website for updates.”
There is a cost of living crisis, people are struggling to eat. Fireworks are utterly unnecessary.
Incorrect. They are used to generate huge revenue for local economy. Ask any of the venues around the seafront that are packed on these evenings.
I actually stood up and saluted when I read this post.
i think thanet needs a lot of things , and fireworks does not spring to mind .
I think it’s all rather lovely (a phrase I enunciate like John Le Mesurier) God save The King.
When the New years eve fireworks were cancelled in Broadstairs We were told they would be rearranged for early in the new year !
Have i missed them ?
Outrage!! “Waste of taxpayers money…. this Council couldn’t organise….etc etc”.
Oh! Wait! It’s for the Royal family!
Cringe, grovel, dribble. “Wonderful sentiment.. proud to be British…. heart warming….brings the nation together in difficult times etc etc “.
Not a fan?
You have stolen Peter’s gimmick. Faux outrage and ridiculous over sentimentality.
It’s all he has in life let him have it.
I love the KING.
People like you should be shackled in a dungeon and whipped, but I’m guessing that’s just another normal Tuesday afternoon to you.
I thought that was your thing with the tips you give “but only to pretty young barmaids”
One of your many revolting claims over the years.
You’re misquoting me. I tip pretty barmaids of all ages. Good looks aren’t just for the young you know. I’m living proof of that.
“Shackled in a dungeon and whipped.” Yet again Checksfield’s self-claimed sense of wit and humour backfires. I expect he’ll want to throw dog faeces at the next person who disagrees with him.
What a waste of money.
A nuisance to animals.
This is the sort of thing knuckle dragging cavemen stand up and salute.
Lucky that sort of breed is dying off.
