Celebrate the coronation at The King Charles

The King Charles in Kings Worthy near Winchester is holding a family fun day this Saturday to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. Sharing a name with the incoming King, the pub’s licensees – Dawn and Darren Anchor – are seizing the opportunity to hold a celebration to remember.

The King Charles will host a weekend of activities – with the main event taking place on the day of the coronation, Saturday 6 May. On the day there will be a cake stand run by the local under 11s girls football team, Worthy’s Youth FC, which Dawn and Darren sponsor. All money raised by the cake stand will go towards a defibrillator that the pub and football team are fundraising for together. Live music, dance classes for all ages, face painting and a local dog show will all be part of the day’s activities. Fuller’s horses, Prince and George, will be there offering dray rides – plus local band Alresford Ukelele will be performing in the afternoon. This will all be accompanied by afternoon tea, a barbecue in the evening and plenty of refreshments from the pub.

Dawn Anchor, publican of The King Charles, said: “I am so excited for the family fun day. The coronation is the perfect opportunity to throw a big celebration anyway – but with a pub name shared with the King, we knew we had to do something extra special.

“We are proud to be a key part of our local community, so it will be fantastic to invite our neighbours – and visitors from further afield – down to celebrate with us on this historic day.”

Other Fuller’s pubs are also celebrating the coronation this weekend, a round-up of these events can be found on the Fuller’s website.
