Muscat: The Coronation of King Charles and The Queen Consort Camilla will take place at Westminster Abbey, London, on May 6, 2023.

The British Embassy in Muscat will also be lit up to mark the occasion, including a screening of the King’s Coronation at the Al Bustan on 6 May for invited guests, with thanks to our Platinum Sponsors, BAE Systems and Standard Chartered; and our Gold Sponsors, Addleshaw-Goddard, Trowers & Hamlin, Royal Grammar School of Guildford Muscat, and Howden Insurance Brokers Oman.

In London, the activities on Sunday will culminate in a fantastic evening of song and dance at the Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle, staged and broadcast by the BBC in front of an audience of several thousand members of the public, selected for free tickets via a public ballot.

The weekend of celebrations will end with the Big Help Out.

Created by Britain’s best-loved charities and organized by The Together Coalition, it will highlight the positive impact

volunteering has on communities across the nation.

In tribute to His Majesty The King’s lifetime of public service, The Big Help Out will encourage people to come out and support the causes that matter to them. (Colleagues at the British Embassy will also be volunteering their time to support their local communities in Muscat).

Tens of thousands of people are expected to visit the capital city to experience this unique and historic occasion, with millions more watching from home, across the UK and around the globe.

Coronation Big Lunches, thousands of street parties, and a day dedicated to good causes will bring communities together throughout the UK over the special Coronation Bank Holiday weekend.

On Sunday, May 7 a spectacular Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle will showcase the country’s diverse cultural heritage in music, theatre, and dance. One of the highlights of the concert will be “Lighting up the Nation”, in which iconic locations across the UK will be lit up with projections, lasers, drone displays, and illuminations.
