Free tickets are now available for the Coronation Big Lunch and After Party event taking place in the grounds of the historic Delapré Abbey in Northampton on Sunday, 7 May from 12pm– 10.30pm.

The Big Lunch is the perfect chance for residents from across West Northamptonshire to come together and celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty Charles III and Her Majesty Queen Camilla, while enjoying a range of live music, performances, activities and stalls, along with a traditional English picnic.

A host of performers will take to the stage during the event, while the National Coronation Concert will be broadcast live on a big screen in the evening.

Tickets are available from the Royal & Derngate. Entry is free but by ticket only.

We’re inviting residents from across West Northamptonshire to join us in celebrating the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, by sharing friendship, food and fun at one of our area’s most majestic destinations.

We’re delighted to be working with Delapré Abbey and the Royal & Derngate to deliver this event, which is set to be a great experience for people of all ages, so please make sure you get your free tickets as soon as possible so you can be part of this historic day.
Cllr Adam Brown, Deputy Leader of West Northamptonshire Council and Cabinet Member for Housing, Leisure and Culture

Anyone looking for a souvenir from the day can browse a selection of unique hand-made items on sale along with a variety of food and drink stalls that will be on site. Those who don’t want to bring their own picnic along can get a picnic box for two from Delapré Abbey’s award-winning Orangery Café.
