Helensburgh and Lomond residents can join the fun-filled festivities celebrating King Charles III's coronation at Loch Lomond Shores next week.

From Saturday, May 6 to Monday May 8, locals will be able to enjoy a range of food, entertainment, and activities.

Bosses at the retail and leisure complex say Sunday and Monday will feature an outdoor market from 10am to 5pm, with a range of artisan goods and street food.

Visitors can get the royal treatment as they enjoy cream tea at Café Zest and take pictures on the royal thrones throughout the centre.

Plenty of entertainment is on offer for children with the face painters and children’s rides there for the whole weekend and the chance to meet Disney Princesses every day.

Buskers will be performing each day and on Sunday afternoon The McAndrews Sisters and Boogie Box Jive dance group will entertain.

Visitors can also see the stilt walking royal guard who will patrol the site on Monday afternoon.

Audrey Calder, Loch Lomond Shores' marketing and events manager, said: “The weekend will be a fun celebration of King Charles III’s coronation and we’re looking forward to getting festive and getting the bunting up!

“We recognise that many people will want to enjoy the Coronation itself on Saturday so, while there will still be things to do and see – especially for families - our main focus has been on creating a real party atmosphere on Sunday and Monday, while people enjoy the long weekend.”

The coronation ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 6.
