Interactive map shows just four events being held in Wales for Coronation
The Government has released a map tracking all the coronation events taking place throughout the UK – which so far show only four registered in Wales.
The map, created by the department for culture, media and sport (DCMS), allows the organisers of lunches, picnics, street parties and other events to mark King Charles being crowned.
According to the Government’s map, 84 public events and 69 street parties or private events have been shared so far.
However, only four of those appear to be in Wales, with a listing in Merthyr Tydfil, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire and Powys.
In Scotland there are seven events listed, while there is only one in Northern Ireland.
Of course, this doesn’t mean there won’t be other coronation celebrations in Wales across the Coronation weekend of May 5-8 – the map only shows events which have been planned and registered with the DCMS.
Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said the map would allow people “up and down the country” to find out what events were taking place near them.
She said: “We want everyone up and down the country to have the opportunity to get involved in the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort.
“Our interactive map will help you find activities, events and celebrations nearby. Whether you’re hosting a street party, planning a Big Lunch, a screening or activity for the Big Help Out, we want to hear from you.
“This is a fantastic occasion to come together with friends, family and your local community to mark this historic moment.”

My celebration will be a ferry from Holyhead to a republic who managed to shed the baggage, pomp and divisiveness of royalty!
I think I’ll join you! I really can’t do with the fawning that will be going on by the ‘grateful subjects’ here.
A finna Iwerddon amdani. Forget the whole thing 🏴
The desperation in trying to make the population excited just shines through. But the best friend of Jimmy Savile will never excite the masses.
An obscene waste of money when ordinary people are struggling. Charles the Turd, another irrelevant royal
That’s four events too many!!
This is not the best time to spend an extravagant amount of taxpayers’ cash, displaying priceless crowns, tiaras, jewels and gold coaches whilst people are struggling to pay household bills. Very bad taste. But I suppose there will be those who would sell their grandmother to finance a street party to celebrate the coronation of a king who would not pi55 on them if they were on fire.
I’m really excited. It’ll be a great weekend – as I’m avoiding this nonsense and going to a folk festival. 😉
Surely That’s four to many!
Merthyr, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire and Powys – the lands of Dic Penderyn, Rebecca Riots and Chartists. Hyfryd!
Trist iawn very sad !!🏴
Wouldn’t it be great were there an even larger number of events AGAINST the Coronation?
Four too many
Why would Welsh People want to have parties etc for an foreign Royal he is English
Just shows how far some people heads have been warped. I definitely now expect them to hold such events for other monarchs from other nations, if not, Why? After all, They are as foreign as they are.
Those four events are four too many. Why celebrate a man who spent the last 40 yrs doing absolutely nothing for Wales only then to impose his England supporting son & wife once king. It’s high time Wales became an independent republic free of these Germanic scroungers.
