Plans to extend pub opening hours for the King’s Coronation weekend


King Charles III will be crowned alongside the Queen Consort at Westminster Abbey on Saturday May 6.

Venues across England and Wales could be allowed to extent their licensing hours over the coronation bank holiday weekend as pubs set to stay open later to celebrate King’s coronation.

This decision will allow patriotic revellers to ‘raise a glass’ to King Charles III, the Government has announced.

Under ministers’ proposals, pubs, clubs and bars across England and Wales will be able to extend their licensing hours from 11pm to 1am to mark the King and Queen Consort’s coronation, it was reported.

The extension would cover the coronation bank holiday weekend, from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 May.

As well as helping communities come together to mark the moment, the Government said the extended hours would deliver a shot in the arm to the hospitality industry.

The extension of licensing hours will be subject to public consultation, and follows the Government’s decision to announce an additional bank holiday on Monday 8 May to mark the coronation.

A similar extension was granted during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, when venues were able to stay open until 1am from Thursday 2 June to Saturday 4 June.

Ms Braverman said: ‘His Majesty The King’s Coronation will be a historic moment that will see our great nation and the entire Commonwealth joined together in celebration.

‘Our country, and in particular our hospitality industry, has faced many challenges in recent years and The King’s Coronation is an opportunity to give a boost to our local businesses, and celebrate with our local communities.

‘Over the Bank Holiday weekend we can raise a glass to our new Monarch, and with our friends and families wish him a long and successful reign,’ Braverman concluded.
