The Mayor of Gedling, Councillor Peter Barnes said;

“We are thrilled to take part in the King’s Coronation celebrations and be able offer this opportunity for our residents to come together on this historic occasion.

I can remember the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and what a special time that was for the whole of the country. I have no doubt that the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will be just as memorable.

Seats at the Bonington will be limited so I’d recommend booking a place as soon as possible to avoid missing out.”
