18 October 22 - King Charles III Coronation - Saturday 6th May 2023

It was a very sad day on 8th September 2022 as Queen Elizabeth II died after a very long reign as head of the British monarchy. At SJ's Leisure, we were all deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty and would like to thank her for her years of service to the UK and commonwealth.

Like many commented on at the time of her passing, Queen Elizabeth II had been a constant in so many people's lives. Not many people are still alive, who lived under the reign of her father, King George VI. I think the impact of her passing was felt considerably to us all due to this fact. It was like the loss of a family member.

The jubilee celebrations in June 2022 were absolutely fantastic and memorable for so many. A huge achievement and milestone to be on the throne for 70 years.

Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, her son has ascended to the throne and plans are already in place for his Coronation which is set to be another marvellous occasion for the royal family, UK and commonwealth population with lots of celebrations and events planned.

We now have a date set for this magnificent occasion - Saturday 6th May 2023.

Just like the jubilee celebrations, we are anticipating high demand for the hire of inflatable and fun products for the weekend (Friday 5th May 2023 - Monday 8th May 2023). At the time of writing, it has not yet been announced whether an additional bank holiday will be created during this weekend or moved from the start of May.

Our online booking system has been switched off across the weekend of the Coronation as we also did with the Jubilee celebrations. As we are anticipating such high demand for our services, we are carefully selecting each hire to ensure ultimate efficiency for our delivery and collection team. Unfortunately we will be covering a smaller delivery area than usual due to anticipated demand.

For all bookings and enquiries between Friday 5th May 2023 and Monday 8th May 2023, we ask customers to contact our friendly office team either by email (info@sjleisure.co.uk) or telephone (01744 602716 / Mon - Fri 9am until 5pm) to discuss further.

We have a large range of products which are ideal for celebrations including bouncy castles and inflatable slides.

Also in our range is some superb British themed products which will be highly sought after for the Coronation weekend, these include the Union Jack Celebration Bouncy Castle and the Great British Globe Bouncy Castle.

We look forward to a majestic weekend in May 2023 - long live the King!
