The Coronation Event

Mortimer celebrated the King's Coronation as only Mortimer can with The Coronation Event on The Fairground. The event included children's activities, a (themed) fancy dress competition, a cake competition, a fun fair, a classic car exhibition, market row, food outlets and a bar. A stage was used to show the actual coronation on a large screen (with smaller repeat screens around the event). Following the completion of the ceremony live music events used the stage - varying from choirs, wind band music, local groups and a headline act - the Brit Pop Boys. The whole event being rounded off with a spectacular firework display.

Of course, following with national tradition, the weather was not kind with persistent rain for most of the morning and afternoon. But this village doesn't allow such things to spoil a party and there were plenty of people (and Union Jacks !) in evidence. The music was much appreciated by all ages, the bar was very busy and we had the additional attraction of pushing vehicles out of the mud.
