This Spring, royal fans will be able to watch the King’s coronation on big screens across the country.

Charles will be crowned in May and more than 30 screens will be erected in towns and cities around the UK.

Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said: “The coronation will be a magical moment that brings people together to celebrate the best of Britain over a special weekend in May.

“These big screens, in major locations in towns and cities in the four nations of the UK, will make it easier for everyone to take part and have a memorable experience to mark this exciting and historic event.”

Where will the big screens be located?

Big screens have been confirmed in some towns and cities including:

  • Cardiff Castle
  • Belfast City Hall
  • Piece Hall, Halifax
  • Jubilee Square, Brighton
  • Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester

More than £1 million has been made available for the screens by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

When is the King’s coronation?

The King’s coronation will take place on May 6 at Westminster Abbey in a televised ceremony that will be shown around the world.

Coronation celebrations are planned over an extended bank holiday weekend with “global music icons and contemporary stars” due at Windsor Castle for a concert on Sunday, televised live by the BBC.

On that day, people are invited to gather for a “coronation big lunch” overseen and organised by the Big Lunch team at the Eden Project.

The Queen Consort has been patron of the Big Lunch since 2013.

Monday is a bank holiday and the day has been set aside for volunteering and it’s being billed as “the big help out”.

It aims to highlight the positive impact volunteering has on communities.

The big help out has been organised by the Together Coalition and a wide range of partners such as the Scouts, the Royal Voluntary Service and faith groups from across the UK.
