Springers Coronation Party

The CMA Springers will be celebrating the coronation of King Charles III with local dignitaries – and with you! Dress up as a King or a Queen, and come to our Coronation Party from 2-5pm on Saturday 29th April 2023.

The day starts at the Events Hall, Gateway Building, Bucks New University (please click HERE  for a map.) Here, you will enjoy craft activities, explore the music and the instruments you will hear later, and learn a Coronation Song, commissioned specially for this event.

At 3.15pm you will parade in your royal robes down the High Street to All Saints’ Parish Church with Bucks dignitaries including His Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, the High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, the Chairman of Bucks County Council, and the Mayor of High Wycombe. Do invite family and friends to line the street to clap and cheer as we march by!

At the church, you will process regally down the aisle as CMA’s massed choirs and orchestra fill the building with the rousing music ‘Zadok the Priest’ by Handel. At the front of the church, you will join the choirs in singing the Coronation Song accompanied by the orchestra.

After your performance, you will enjoy a drink and a coronation cake before leaving the church to follow the CMA Instrument Trail through Eden Shopping Centre. (The Instrument Trail will be available all week – perhaps you have friends or brothers and sisters who would like to help you?)

Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult.  Unfortunately for this event, numbers are strictly limited, so please don't bring extra adults, older or younger children along with your 4-8 year old - we must ask that you make alternative arrangements for them.  

The event will be recorded and photographed.   The video and photographs will be shared with all participants and on our website and social media channels to promote the work of Chiltern Music Academy, including applying for funding.  Please have a look at our website to see previous event videos.  When purchasing tickets you will be asked for media permission, if you are not able to give permission, please contact us in advance of buying tickets at events@chilternmusicacademy.org so that we can discuss how this can be managed at the event.
