Coronation Concert and Picnic

Our Coronation Concert and Picnic was a great success. About 400 people enjoyed the Cricklade Band Concert in the unexpectedly fine weather.

We are very fortunate in Cricklade to have such talented musicians in the Cricklade  Band to enable us to celebrate important events like the Coronation in such an enjoyable way.

Lots of people brought a picnic to enjoy while watching members of the Court Leet light the beacon.

Here are some pictures from the event


Thank you to all the members of Cricklade Band and everyone who helped to make this a special day.

Court Leet Coronation Mugs

Cricklade Court Leet members visited St Sampson’s School, Cricklade Preschool Playgroup and Thames Playgroup this week. The Court is giving every child up to the age of 11, who lives in Cricklade, a Coronation Mug to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6th May 2023.

Some of the children had made amazingly colourful crowns and it was very enjoyable to celebrate this historic event with them, and to give them a small memento to mark the occasion.


Cricklade Children to get Coronation Mugs

King Charles III Coronation

As part of the Celebrations for the Coronation of King Charles III, the Court are presenting all children aged up to 11 who live in Cricklade a commemorative mug.

Children attending St Sampsons School and both the Playgroups will be given their mugs beforehand, so you need to take no action.

However, any parent of a child who is not covered by these arrangements as they attend different schools outside of Cricklade (or none) is asked to contact the Steward via our contact page as soon as possible giving the child’s name, age, address, and the school they attend so we can reserve a mug for you.

You will then be asked to call at the Town Council office on Monday 8th May between 10 and 12 to receive their commemorative mugs. The office will be open specifically for this purpose.
