Chair of the City of London Corporation’s Hampstead Heath Management Committee, William Upton KC, said:

“The first Coronation of a new monarch in 70 years will be a truly momentous event for our country.

“To mark the occasion, we want to bring together the whole community to celebrate on the Heath.

“I look forward to seeing people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to enjoy the fun.”

The Worshipful Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Alison Moore said:

“This wonderful community event on Golders Hill promises to be a fantastic day out and the perfect way to celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III.

“It's a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages from across our diverse community to come together and enjoy the music, entertainment, and activities on offer, and to commemorate this historic occasion in a fun-filled and memorable way.”

The Heath and Hampstead Society and Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents Association have contributed to the event sponsorship.

The City Corporation protects over 11,000 acres of open space in London and south east England, including Hampstead Heath, Epping Forest, and over 200 smaller sites in the Square Mile, investing over £38m a year.

The City Corporation’s open spaces, most of which are charitable trusts, are run at little or no cost to the communities that they serve. They include important wildlife habitats, Special Areas of Conservation, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and National Nature Reserves.
