The display of old photographs of royal visits to Warwick and Leamington will remain on show in the Warwick Visitor Information Centre for the week following the coronation, until May 13th.
It has two dozen pictures from the archives of visits stretching back to 1900, with a photograph of the then Prince of Wales, known as ‘Bertie’, riding past the Lord Leycester Hospital. There are also magazines from the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953.
The display was featured as the first item in ITV Central News in a report on Warwick’s coronation preparations on Tuesday 2nd May.
The Visitor Centre in the old Court House in Jury Street will be open each day apart from Coronation Day itself, when it will be closed, and the town will mark the event with a picnic and music in the Market Place.
And on Sunday 7th May, from 12noon to 3pm, you can take a picnic to Pageant Gardens behind the Court House, where there will be live entertainment.
