The Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla

The Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla

We will be celebrating the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla in May, by live-streaming the Coronation service on its big screen; hosting a Civic Service of thanksgiving; and organising a litter pick on the streets around the Cathedral.

“We have been honoured to be host significant ‘Royal’ moments over the last 12 months. This is another opportunity to gather with friends, family and the wider community. To celebrate, to give thanks and offer something back to the area.

“Everyone is invited to join us for any or all of the events that mark the Coronation of King Charles III. You will be sure of a warm and generous Bradford welcome.”

The Very Revd Andy Bowerman, Dean of Bradford
