Young people challenged to design Coronation card for the King


The winner will be invited to the Palace of Westminster to have tea MP Victoria Prentis

Banbury’s MP, Victoria Prentis, is challenging local school pupils to design an image to adorn the front of a Coronation Card that she will send to King Charles III, on behalf of local people.  

The competition is open to both primary and secondary school aged students and the winner will be invited to the Palace of Westminster to have tea with Mrs Prentis.

Mrs Prentis said: “In May, the country will come together to celebrate the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. Very few people will recall the last coronation in 1953; I remember my parents speaking about how significant an event it was in their childhoods. Street parties were held all over the country, as well as village fêtes, bonfires and services of commemoration.

“To mark this historic occasion, I have decided to launch my Coronation Card Competition. I’m looking for something really creative that encapsulates what we love about our area.”

Entries need to be A4 in size and should be sent to: Victoria Prentis MP, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA.   The deadline for entries is Monday April 17.    All designs should be clearly marked with the young person’s name, school form and name, and age.
