Newmarket is set to come alive for the Coronation of King Charles III and Camilla between Saturday 6 – Monday 8 May 2023, and we can’t wait. To celebrate we at Love Newmarket BID are holding a Coronation Window Competition with all businesses within the business improvement district (BID) encouraged to get involved.
After the amazing efforts seen at the Queen’s Jubilee last year, we are sure the windows are going to impress, so come to Newmarket across the weekend and enjoy the colourful displays. From union jack emblazoned storefronts, to photos of the King and Queen Consort themselves, the town will be celebrating in style.
And this is where we need your help…
We will be hosting a competition across our Facebook Page, and within participating stores, to see whose window our local residents and visitors would like to see crowned champion. Simply pop into the town during the weekend to see them yourself and cast your vote, or pop online for further instructions. Voting will be open until 11 May 2023.
Many businesses are also hosting their own events and offers to celebrate the weekend, so there’s plenty to join in with whilst supporting our local independents and national businesses alike. Pop in for a royal tea or feast like a king at one of our local eateries, visit our fashion and accessories stores offering a wealth of choice for men and women alike or make yourself feel like royalty with a visit to one of our independent hair and beauty boutiques. There’s so much to do.
Bank Holiday Monday will also see celebrations taking place on The Severals, with a family-friendly day out organised by Newmarket Town Council. Funfair rides, music and more will be on offer. We’ll see you there!
