Town council plans fireworks and family fun in Broadstairs for King’s coronation weekend


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.”


    • 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.

  1. 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 ?

  2. 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 “.

  3. 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.
