Beyond Radio to join in Carnforth's Big Coronation Lunch

Beyond Radio is delighted to be part of Carnforth's Big Coronation Lunch to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.

The event will take place in Lower Market Street and the War Memorial Gardens on Sunday, May 7, and Beyond Radio will be live with a special radio broadcast direct from Carnforth from 3pm until 6pm on the day.

The team will be there chatting to local people and performers and we're looking forward to what should be a right royal celebration!

The Big Coronation Lunch itself starts at 11.50am and shortly afterwards, Councillor Jim Grisenthwaite, the town's mayor-elect, will perform the official opening.

There will be three sittings for the Big Coronation Lunch, from noon-2pm, 2.30pm-4.30pm and 5pm-7pm.

Book for a Big Coronation Lunch sitting here. 

You can bring your own food or enjoy the food and drink available as well as a range of arts and crafts, activities and top entertainment.

Performing on the day will be sisters Gabriella and Jasmine T, as seen on BBC1's Michael McIntyre's Big Show and ITV1's The Voice Kids. They will sing from 5pm to 5.45pm.

Morecambe opera singer and star of musicals Leigh Rhianon Coggins (pictured below) will also perform with a mixture of classical opera, musical theatre and uplifting pomp songs - perfect for a Coronation fit for a King! You can catch her twice at 12.05pm and 3.05pm.

Vocalists from C and C Entertainments will appear at 1pm and 7pm, and classic rock band The Fourth Colour will perform from 2pm to 3pm in the War Memorial Gardens.

Folk and pop trio Triple A will perform from 4pm, and singer-songwriter Carlie Mai will be there from 6pm.

There will be lots of other fabulous entertainers, vendors and activities throughout the day and everything is FREE!

They include stilt walking, face painting, pole and aerial art demonstrations and more.
