Wembley’s Olympic Way to be renamed for coronation during huge celebration

Wembley Park is set to host a free Coronation Day celebration in honour of His Majesty King Charles III.

The special event dubbed the ‘Wembley Park Coronation Celebration’, will take place on Saturday, May 6th, and will feature a giant screen showing the coronation ceremony in front of the National Stadium, with live entertainers performing on a stage below.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the festivities from deck chairs, and Union Jack-themed banners will adorn the neighbourhood’s processional route, Olympic Way, which will be temporarily renamed King’s Way for the entire month of May in recognition of the King’s accession to the throne.

Wembley Park’s famous walkway, which is widely known as “Wembley Way,” will feature a special family zone with face painters, magicians, and stilt walkers. Additionally, a Royal Photo Booth will be set up for visitors to take memorable pictures with ‘King Charles.’ Shoreditch-based Urban Food Fest will operate a pop-up food market, with picnic tables and a variety of street food available, while celebrated Wembley Park bakery Bread Ahead will delight visitors with their famous doughnuts. Artisan traders will also sell locally sourced homewares, gifts, and fashion items.

As custodians of this iconic site, Julian Tollast, Head of Masterplanning and Design at Wembley Park, stated that the neighbourhood holds the area’s rich history close to its heart. They believe it is a fitting tribute to temporarily rename Olympic Way to King’s Way in honour of His Majesty’s coronation.
