How to host your own Coronation event in Guildford

Your own coronation event

You can apply to close a road for all sorts of things. Monday 8 May is a special bank holiday commissioned by The King to celebrate volunteering. 

To mark the Coronation, any road closure application over the bank holiday from Friday 5 May to Monday 8 May will be free.

If you would like to hold a street party or celebration, you must apply by the deadline of 3 April 2023. This is to make sure your event will be safe and your application processed in time.

What you need to know

We have a few simple steps to help organise your day:

  • let everyone on the road know what your plans are
  • provide a clear map or plan showing your road closure and the diversion of traffic
  • you'll be responsible for providing, putting up and removing all signage
  • you'll also need to provide an event management plan. This will cover:
    • when the event is taking place
    • contact numbers for the organiser/s
    • a timeline for the day and;
    • how the area will be set up
  • consider getting Public Liability Insurance cover
