DCMS has made £1m available for more than 30 UK locations to host big screens showing the King’s Coronation.

Confirmed sites include Cardiff Castle, Belfast City Hall, Piece Hall in Halifax, Jubilee Square in Brighton and Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester.

The Coronation of The King and The Queen Consort takes place on 6 May at Westminster Abbey in London.

A celebratory weekend for the Coronation will see local authorities host events including cultural festivals, live music, community workshops, art showcases and creative games and competitions.

There will be a Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle on 7 May, broadcast live on BBC One and iPlayer, where thousands of members of the public will be in the audience. Locations across the UK will be lit up using projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations.

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.”
