WETHERSPOON is making a major change at all of its 800 pubs for the King’s coronation – and punters will love it.

The pub chain will keep its venues open for an hour longer on Sunday, May 7 to mark the occasion, The Sun can reveal.

It comes after Home Secretary Suella Braverman extended licensing hours from the normal 11pm to 1am to allow people to “enjoy an extra pint or two”.

Wetherspoon confirmed that all of its 844 pubs will remain open an hour after their usual closing time – but the exact time they will shut will vary from venue to venue.

Venues that are usually open until 10pm will remain open until 11pm, while some will continue to serve right up to until midnight or 1am.

So if you’re planning on raising a glass to the King, you may want to check what your local is doing by visiting the Wetherspoon website.

The move to keep pubs open longer was backed by a leading body in the hospitality sector, as well as 77 per cent of the public who took part in a month-long consultation.

Pubs chains including Greene King and Fullers have said that some of their pubs will also be extending their opening hours for the occasion.

The Coronation Ceremony will take place at Westminster Abbey, London, and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

A similar extended opening hours was allowed in England and Wales for the four day bank holiday to mark the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last June.

The King’s coronation ceremony will take place almost 70 years after the Queen’s historic coronation.

Camilla will be crowned alongside her husband, just as the Queen Mother was by King George VI in 1937.
