High Wycombe Gets Set For A Right Royal ‘Coronation’ Knees-Up


High Wycombe will be getting in the regal spirit with a pop-up ‘Coronation celebration’ taking place on the High Street on Monday 8th May from 11am – 4pm


High Wycombe town centre will be flying the flag for Our Majesty this upcoming Coronation weekend and celebrating our NEW King with a ‘right Royal knees-up’ on Monday 8th May.


In a collaboration between Wycombe Food Hub and HWBIDCo, the High Street will play host to the ‘Best of British’ entertainment, with a pop-up vintage-themed café, LIVE music from swinging trio ‘The Jivettes’ and FREE Coronation crafts, PLUS the event will even feature its own Royal Throne, perfect for a Coronation selfie…


The FREE event will be running from 11am – 4pm, underneath The Guildhall & on High Wycombe’s historic Cornmarket, welcoming visitors of all ages for a traditional cuppa and royally-good sticky bun. All proceeds from the Vintage Café will be going to Wycombe Food Hub, who’ll also be collecting tins & dry goods for their town centre food drive.

PLUS the fun doesn’t end there! We have a FREE Coronation Town Centre Trail to take part in. Running for the month of May, trail maps can be collected from The Air Raid Shelter Cafe and Tea Room in The Chilterns. 


Melanie Williams, Chief Executive of the High Wycombe Town Centre organisation, HWBIDCo, commented; “The Coronation will be such a momentous occasion for the whole country and we’re really excited to be bring the celebrations to the town centre, especially in collaboration with other town centre organisations – we’ll be hanging out the bunting and getting in the regal spirit, so we hope you’ll join us for a right Royal knees up…”
