Picture copyright ©Doug Harding

It’s the season for booking summer parties and at the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead we have a wonderful playground of party venues where you can have a party fit for a King!

Leading the way in the best of summer parties is of course the Coronation celebration taking place in early May 2023 in Windsor. To celebrate The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, Windsor Castle will host a special Coronation Concert. It will be produced, staged and broadcast live by the BBC and BBC Studios. The Coronation Concert will bring global music icons and contemporary stars together in celebration of the historic occasion.

The beautiful Royal Borough offers a wealth of options for creating your own party in Berkshire. It’s ease of travel (just 20 minutes from Heathrow), miles of riverside with great views, and a plethora of event venues to choose from. There are some amazing outdoor event spaces ideal for a summer festival-style party with DJs, food trucks and stretch tents. Add some royal-themed food and decor and you're ready to roll!
