Ale to the King!

Celebrations and events in Cornwall for King Charles' coronation (1)

St Austell Brewery is celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III with the release of a new bottled-conditioned beer. Extra Special Tribute is the first in a series of limited-edition takes on the company’s flagship Tribute pale ale, which will be released once a year.

To celebrate King Charles III accession to the throne, at the age of 74, the brewery’s first batch of Extra Special Tribute is 7.4% abv. Its deep golden colour is testament to the beer’s strength.

Crafted with all-British hops - Sovereign, Target, and Harlequin - it boasts stone fruit and citrus flavours, complemented by orange notes. The Cornish Gold and Maris Otter barley used to make the beer is all grown by farmers in Cornwall - a fitting tribute to the King’s 70-year tenure as the Duke of Cornwall.

Georgina Young, brewing director, St Austell Brewery said: “We’re very excited to be releasing a limited-edition beer for the Coronation. What better way to raise a toast to our new King?

"It’s the same Tribute recipe that people know and love, but with more strength and an extra special twist for an extra special occasion. In honour of His Majesty, we’ve brewed it using 100% English hops and Cornish barley. It’s bottle-conditioned too, meaning flavours of madeira and sherry will continue to develop over time as the beer matures.

"We’re excited to be starting this new annual tradition and already looking forward to unveiling next year’s extra special batch of Tribute."

Cornwall in top 10 staycation locations to enjoy coronation weekend

This May, to celebrate his coronation, the King will be bestowing the nation with an extra day off, and it seems as though Brits really are making the most of this extra bank holiday.

Self-catering specialist cottages.com has spotted an interesting trend when it comes to bookings.

Data shows the most popular locations for a ‘coronation staycation’ include some of His Majesty’s favourite spots. The Top 10 Locations for a King’s Coronation Staycation show Cornwall in the third favourite spot behind Cumbria and Yorkshire but ahead of Devon in fourth place. Northumberland, Norfolk, The Scottish Highlands, Pembrokeshire, Derbyshire and the Isle of Wight complete the top 10 list.

Tom Bell, vice president - portfolio, at Awaze – the parent company of cottage.com said the Royals are known for staying in the UK when holidaying, often enjoying some down time at Highgrove, southwest of Tetbury in Gloucestershire, a location our King has called home for many years.

The Royals are also very fond of Scotland and Birkhall located on the Balmoral estate is where King Charles and Queen Camilla began their honeymoon in 2005. The couple are also fond of holidays in the “Cornish Caribbean” including the Isles of Scilly and have visited the Duchy every year as part of an annual tour of Cornwall when King Charles was Prince Charles, Duke of Cornwall.

Mr Bell said: "Interestingly, many of the King’s top destinations made it to the list including Yorkshire, Cornwall, Norfolk, and The Highlands.

"For the Coronation we’re seeing more Cumbrian destinations being booked in comparison to February half-term family getaways, for example. For those wanting to explore some of HRH’s favourites, people might like to explore places like Penzance in Cornwall, which is a great location to take a day trip over to the Isles of Scilly."

Tom added: “For something a bit different, there’s Frampton on Severn - a beauty spot in Gloucestershire and just half an hour drive from HRH’s favourite residence, Highgrove House.

"It’s also reported that the King is partial to the Yorkshire Dales and is said to have a soft spot for The Blue Lion pub in East Witton near Leyburn – he reportedly loved the food so much, he returned the next day for round two. Lastly, we know that HRH has enjoyed many Christmases at Sandringham in North Norfolk and is also a big advocate of Cumbria’s farming community and heritage sites – these two locations also both made it to the top 10."

Plenty of opportunities to celebrate in Cornwall

Truro and Falmouth MP Cherilyn Mackrory has welcomed plans for people in Cornwall and across the UK to volunteer and take part in community support for the coronation.

Opportunities include the ‘New to Nature’ partnership programme, a National Lottery Heritage Fund traineeships for young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to begin new careers in environmental organisations.

This programme continues the King’s ongoing commitment to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK since the founding of the Prince’s Trust in 1976.

People and businesses are also encouraged to take part in The Big Help Out, a volunteer-led community initiative which pays tribute to the king’s lifetime of public service. Across Cornwall numerous businesses are hosting events and activities which are open to everyone in the community to register and take part.

These schemes form part of a wider series of events across the UK, with the goal to provide opportunities and community support but also for people to enjoy themselves and celebrate their communities.

Students between eight and 18 have been invited to take part in a challenge to create poster designs to celebrate the Coronation. The themes of the competition include community, diversity, sustainability, and youth.

Neighbours and communities are also invited to come together for the Coronation Big Lunch. This nationwide party will take place on Sunday 7th May, and people are invited to register and organise them in their local areas.

Cherilyn said: "What we do very well in Cornwall is community. We have solid towns and villages where hard-working people will always look out for each other.

"This is a great chance to celebrate and have fun but also for all of us to get stuck in and help each other out. I saw how well the community came together during the pandemic, and I know we will see that repeated here.
