The beautiful market town of Dulverton, the Southern Gateway to Exmoor, is lighting up and flying the flags to celebrate the King’s Coronation!
On the evening of Tuesday 2nd May festive red, white and blue lights appeared around the town – at the beautiful Church of All Saints, the iconic Town Hall, Kings Corner beside the town’s medieval bridge and the Exmoor Lawns beside the River Barle.
A brilliant team of volunteers had spent many hours creating the lighting display to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III. The town will be lit up in the evenings from 7.45 to 11.45pm and in the mornings from 5 to 7am too. The lighting display will stay up for approximately three weeks.
Union Jack flags and red, white and blue bunting were already flying in the breeze and bringing a celebratory atmosphere to the town, with many of the town’s shops joining in the fun with their window displays, such as Oggies Music Shop, Dulverton Post Office and Brimblecombe Gift Shop.
On Coronation Day – Saturday 6th May – all are welcome in Dulverton Town Hall free of charge to watch television coverage of the crowning ceremony of King Charles III and Queen Camilla taking place in Westminster Abbey on the cinema screen.
Christine Dubery, Chair of Dulverton Town Council, said “It’s wonderful to see our charming town coming together to celebrate this once in a lifetime event. Huge thanks to the volunteers for their help in putting up the lighting, the flags and the bunting – we’re ready to celebrate our new King in Dulverton!”
