A Royal Celebration

Published: 8th May 2023 | St Peter’s Marlborough

A fitting weekend of tribute by the people of Marlborough

The nation watched on as the new King was crowned and jubilant scenes from London seemed to spill out nationally over the course of Saturday evening.

Walking the closed high street on Sunday morning was very special. The view up from Town Hall was an awesome sight, with tables, bunting and picnic baskets as far as the eye could see.

Heading up to St Peter’s the wind took and the Union Jack atop the tower, kicked up in the warm Spring breeze. It seemed nature was to be on our side with a brief window from the grey at the most fortunate of times.

Sunday at St Peter’s started with the wonderful Wiltshire Police Band, a 25 piece wind ensemble consisting of wood, brass and percussion. They delighted those having cream teas and patrons of the Cardinal Coffee Shop alike.

St Peter’s welcomed hundreds through the doors, guides took over 100 people up the tower, we sold out of cream teas and had a packed Cardinal Coffee Shop and grounds throughout the day.

Those visiting us in the afternoon were treated to wonderful performances from the Marlborough Community Choir and the Marlborough Players, the perfect accompaniment to days festivities.

As day drew to a close and the party made its way back onto the high street, we were treated to one of the most amazing evenings of celebration and entertainment. The people of Marlborough really came together to deliver a fitting tribute to King Charles III, one that will live long in the memory.
