Solihull gets ready to celebrate King Charles' coronation

Solihull Editorial 22nd Apr, 2023   0

FAMILIES are cordially invited to Solihull town centre to enjoy the free, fun activities celebrating the coronation of King Charles III.

The Royal festivities, organised by Solihull Business Improvement District (BID), begin on Saturday, April 29, with the launch of the family sticker trail.

Children can pick up a trail booklet from the Touchwood Information Desk, Pizza Hut, Vita in Mell Square or any of the 12 businesses taking part and then visit them all, picking up a sticker and learning fun facts about past monarchs as they go.

Those who complete the trail can be in with a chance of winning a £300 gift card.

Solihull town centre will then turn into a hive of activity on coronation day, Saturday May 6.

Wythall Transport Museum will be running free vintage bus tours from Solihull train station into the town centre and a static bus will be in Mell Square for residents to find out all the fascinating history on the bus carriage makers of Solihull.

Be entertained by the Union Flag Belles roaming the town centre, take a selfie on our royal throne (there’s even one for royal pooches too!) and soak up the celebratory atmosphere.

Touchwood’s fabulous umbrella walkway will be open for all to enjoy the live screening of the Coronation event at The Core Theatre, where there are lots of kids activities too.

Melanie Palmer, chief executive of Solihull BID, said: “We are thrilled to be part of the Coronation activities in Solihull, bringing our business community and visitors together for this historic event. We look forward to seeing everyone have fun.”
