The Cotswolds celebrated the Coronation in style.

King Charles III and Queen Camilla were officially crowned on Saturday, as communities around the world marked the occasion.

Shipston was transformed as residents took to the streets to party.

The sounds of the Town Band filled the air as children enjoyed face painting and pavement chalking as adults set up picnics and had a boogie.

Peter Cox, a councillor until recenlty, said: "The day was a success, helped very much with having a sunny day and not forgetting the work put in by the volunteer organisers.

"Face painting was very popular along with a few boxes of pavement chalk.

"Our town band and local mobile disco supplied some good music.

"The two mobile food suppliers and ice cream van were kept busy as were the High Street hotels and bars."

There were similar scenes in Chipping Campden with many of the town centre roads closed to cars on Sunday as Campden Morris Dancers, St Catharine’s School Choir, Generation Jones, The Artichokes and Rosie T dance academy provided entertainment.

Meanwhile, there was plenty going on in Broadway, beginning with the lighting of the beacon at Broadway Tower on Friday night.

Then on Saturday, many braved the British weather to watch the coronation ceremony armed with umbrellas.

Luckily the sun was shining come Sunday, as crowds once again gathered on the Green to watch the Coronation Concert.

Reverend Michelle Ward, the vicar for Broadway and Wickhamford Parish Churches, said: "The weekend started with the pupils from both our village schools judging the shop window competition - The Man Cave won (I think the dog, teddies in the mini and a stag with a bow tie or horse with a cape etc helped) and was amazing as a whole.

"It incorporated every aspect it could of village life from the beacon at the tower, a hunt, a service and shops - something for every age.

"Volunteers pulling together to put bunting up, collect litter, local shops on the green and things for the children.

"On Sunday a cupcake competition, a thanksgiving service for King Charles, maypole dancing by the village schools, Morris dancing and children climbing a rock wall or hoops and circus skills or watching the big screen.

"The idea of bringing the community together and serving the community is what King Charles is about.

"I loved every minute and it was a joy to be part of it and this community which since Covid has pulled together and worked together for the good of everyone.

"Everyone matters."
