Pubs, clubs and bars could open for longer to celebrate King’s coronation | UK News

Pubs, clubs and bars in England and Wales could be allowed to open for longer to celebrate the King’s coronation.

The government has said it will consult on extending licensing hours from 11pm until 1am on 5, 6, and 7 May across the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Home Office said the move will provide “an opportunity for our communities to come together and celebrate this historic moment, and support our hospitality industry”.

Laws allow the hours to be extended to mark occasions of “exceptional national significance”.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman said: “His Majesty the King’s coronation will be a historic moment that will see our great nation and the entire Commonwealth joined together in celebration.

“Our country, and in particular our hospitality industry, has faced many challenges in recent years and the King’s coronation is an opportunity to give a boost to our local businesses, and celebrate with our local communities.

“Over the Bank Holiday weekend we can raise a glass to our new monarch, and with our friends and families wish him a long and successful reign.”

Like his mother, the King will be crowned at Westminster Abbey, in the presence of faith leaders, peers, MPs, and foreign heads of state.

Timings for the coronation have not been revealed, but it is likely King Charles will travel from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey with Queen Consort Camilla in the gold state coach, which is reserved for coronations and jubilees.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on television, but the number of guests attending in person is expected to be cut from 8,000 to 2,000 and the ceremony is likely to last just over an hour

Buckingham Palace has previously said: “The coronation will reflect the monarch’s role today and .look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.”

Experts have speculated that the current cost of living crisis and the King’s desire for a slimmed down monarchy are behind the decision for a more muted ceremony.

Jamal Edwards’ mum Brenda marks late son’s birthday with fundraiser on ‘bittersweet day’ to celebrate his life | Ents & Arts News

Music entrepreneur Jamal Edwards’ mum Brenda has paid tribute to her son on what would have been his 32nd birthday.

The YouTube star, who helped launch the careers of artists including Ed Sheeran, Dave and Jessie J, died suddenly at home in Acton, west London, in February.

Ahead of a fundraising celebration to mark his birthday, TV presenter and stage star Brenda Edwards told Sky News it was a “bittersweet day”.

“It has only been six months and it’s been a hard six months for myself, his sister and the family and his close friends,” she said. “But we feel that we have to do something to celebrate.”

Born in Luton, Jamal grew up on a council estate and went on to be appointed an MBE for services to music as well as an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, which helps young people set up their own businesses.

His online urban music platform SBTV helped dozens of UK artists rise to prominence over the years.

Acts including Big Narstie, Mist and Fleur East are due to perform at the SBTV “mega cook-up” to mark what would have been his birthday on Wednesday, with surprise guest performances also promised.

Following Jamal’s death, many music stars including Sheeran paid tribute. In July, the Shape Of You star released the video for Are You Entertained, a collaboration with US rapper Russ, which had been planned by his late friend.

“I wish Jam was here to see it, I wish we’d done it together, but he would be buzzing how all his people came together and brought his vision to life,” Sheeran said at the time.

“Ed and Jamal’s relationship has gone for many, many, many years and I’m just really grateful,” Brenda said. “Ed’s been so supportive. There has been so much support from all around, so I’m really grateful for everything.”

She said the birthday event was about celebrating her son’s life “in the best way that we know how [as] music was one of the ways that he tried to bring everybody together”.

British entrepreneur Jamal Edwards has died at the age of 31, according to the BBC. Issue date: Sunday February 20, 2022.

She added: “It’s going to be a bittersweet day but I’m smiling thinking about him as well as the sad emotion that I’ve obviously got…

“I know he’s going to be looking down watching us.”

Earlier in August, a coroner concluded that Edwards died after taking cocaine and suffering cardiac arrhythmia.

Following his death, his mother warned others of the dangers of taking recreational drugs, saying in a statement: “It’s so important that we drive more conversation about the unpredictability of recreational drugs.

“Jamal is proof that this can happen to anyone. His passing has shown that one bad decision on any one occasion can lead to devastating consequences.”

Proceeds from the birthday fundraiser will go to the Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust, which was set up in his memory to help combat homelessness, support people with mental health issues, and provide life skills to young people in need.
