Last week we saw street party food and stalls set up in many of our towns and cities, market places were filled with street food vendors, coffee vans and music to celebrate the coronation of Charles III and his wife, Camilla, as king and queen of the United Kingdom on Saturday 6 May 2023. Charles acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022, upon the death of his mother, Elizabeth II.
King Charles’s coronation was marked with thousands of street parties across the country. Many of us decorated our streets and parks with bunting and flags. Celebrations took place all over the country to mark the first coronation of a UK monarch in seven decades! A moment in history!
Coronation party organisers encouraged and enhanced their community spirit, providing entertainment and refreshments for both locals and visitors to the area. Most of these attractions required a power source. Traditional power sources such as petrol generators, are generally unsafe and unsightly, noisey in open areas where people are relaxing, dancing and socialising. Generators also pose potential risks and hazards.
Staging an outdoor event for the coronation was a great commercial activity for any local authority. Attracting more people to make use of public space, not only boosts the commercial viability of our town centres, but it also helps to create a sense of community and well-being.
Pop Up Power Supplies have a range of retractable service units that provide electricity for public spaces such as urban areas, historic sites, market places, town squares and parks all perfect for the coronation!
There are three main units in the range – pop up units, power bollards and in-ground, all of which provide a range of outdoor power. Each unit is available with a range of configurations, as well as bespoke in-ground power units or pop up units with recessed tops that can accommodate different forms of surface material such as paving.
Pop Up Power Supplies® are currently working with town planners and local communities to specify their pop up power units to help provide power for stalls, live music, and food and drink suppliers.
