The celebration in market square is set to start at 3pm and will feature music, dance performances and food.

Jamie Walker of CJ’s Events Warwickshire said: “While it is unfortunate that the market will have to close earlier, it is important to remember that this is a significant event, and it is crucial to support and participate in the celebrations.

“We have worked closely with Warwick District Council, along with the organisers of the Kings Coronation celebration, Warwick Town Council and Warwick Chamber of Trade to

ensure the celebrations can take place safely, causing as little disruption to Warwick market.

"If you are planning to visit Warwick market this Saturday, make sure to schedule your visit early and understand that the market will be closing at 12.30pm.

"For those who are interested in participating in the coronation celebrations, remember that this event will be a great opportunity to witness a historic moment and celebrate with the town.

"Let us all come together and embrace this wonderful occasion.”

The Coronation events in the town will take place on Saturday May 6 and Sunday May 7, and have been organised by Warwick Town Council, Warwick Chamber of Trade and The Guy of Warwick Society.
