Street festivals Southampton Coronation: Roads closed for now

Southampton residents look forward to street parties in honor of the coronation of King Charles III. in May.

Residents have had more than a month to submit requests for road closures and Southampton City Council has received 43 requests so far.

The official figure has yet to be confirmed as residents are looking forward to the big day.

Mary Bell, 73, who lives in Amberley Close, said: “Last year for the Queen’s Anniversary, we had about 80 people come to our street party, so it would be nice if we got those numbers again.

“We have a street party on Sunday because most people want to be at home on Saturday to see the coronation.

“We also thought that people would be free on the Monday of the holiday so they could enjoy the holiday a little longer if it happened on Sunday!

“For as long as I can remember, I have been to every street festival.

“I actually said that last year would be my last year, but when the coronation of the king was announced, friends said, “Mary, please do it again this year,” and so did I!

“The Queen’s death last year was devastating, but we must show our support for the King and the Queen’s consort.

“It’s great to have everyone together at events like this.”

The three-day Coronation Bank Holiday runs from May 6-8, with the Coronation Big Lunch on Saturday, an initiative supported by De Nationale Loterij.

The special event draws millions of people each year to build community spirit and reduce loneliness.
