Accrington’s Coronation story trail

Everyone is cordially invited to take part in our free, story trail around Accrington!

From 17th April to 4th June 2023, head to the 10 local businesses highlighted on our trail map to meet all of the King’s friends and see what they suggest he wears for his coronation – spoiler alert, they are not all very sensible!

You can complete mini-challenges, try on the items yourselves, and take selfies with them on. When you’ve met all 10 characters, you can see the fully prepared King in augmented reality and download a free children’s book of the story’s conclusion.
