King Charles III’s historic coronation ceremony will be marked by three days of celebratory events in Havering, the council has announced.

The main event will be held at Westminster Abbey in London in the presence of more than 2,000 guests, but residents can organise their own festivities in their neighbourhoods.

A host of activities will be taking place around Havering and groups can apply for funding up to £10,000 to organise their events, the council has said.

Applicants can submit a full event plan to the Havering safety advisory group for approval, it added.

Here is a list of festivities that the council say are planned:

May 5: A volunteer market place will be held outside Havering Town Hall in Romford from 11 am to 4 pm. Organisations from the Havering volunteer community will be providing information on their services on the day.

May 6:  Romford Business Improvement District will be holding an event in Romford town centre on the coronation day.

The agenda includes a screening of the ceremony, live performances and children’s entertainment and games.

There is also an option to book an exclusive afternoon tea experience.

May 7:  A coronation big lunch is planned for this day. Neighbours and communities will be encouraged to share food, spread joy and have fun together.

The council had more than one hundred applications for street parties, but these are now closed for approvals.

Residents can check for more details on each of the events.

May 7 has been chosen as a special bank holiday to mark the coronation, which comes months after Queen Elizabeth II's death.

The King visited east London last month, where he went to Whitechapel and Brick Lane to meet members of the British-Bangladeshi community before opening a medical teaching hub at University of East London in Stratford.
