The Coronation Big Lunch on Sunday 7th May brings together communities across the country in a nationwide act of celebration and friendship, so bring a blanket and come and enjoy the day with your neighbours, friends, and family.

BID manager, Muj Rahman, said of the event:

“We are incredibly excited to announce and host this event, it is a fantastic opportunity to bring together the Redditch community and be part of the celebrations. Everyone is invited to come and join in the party, celebrate our Monarchy and the diversity of our town.”

“Food and drink are so central to the way that we celebrate special occasions or to the way that we socialise with others, so it is wonderful to be able to offer Redditch locals the space to come together, socialise and just soak up the festive atmosphere. With lots of family entertainment planned for the weekend, it is a great way of celebrating how multicultural our local community is, reflecting our vibrant town and all that it has to offer”.

Expect to find tasty street food options from around the world, tempting sweet treats crafted by artisan producers including hot and cold items as well as a variety of beverages including cocktail stands and quirky craft items.

The event will be open for visitors from 10am-6pm Friday to Sunday and will take place in the town centre around St-Stephens Church and hosted in partnership with the market events experts RR Events.

Redditch BID, who represents the businesses in Redditch town centre is keen to organise different events throughout the year, to promote and enhance the image of our town and bringing together the whole community.
