UK Government to Spend £1m on Coronation Big Screens Across the Country for Public Celebrations

The UK Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport has announced plans to allocate £1 million to erect big screens in more than 30 locations across the country for the public to come together and watch the Coronation. The screens will be set up in areas with metro mayors and the top 10 largest urban areas by population in England, as well as councils in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The local authorities will have the option to put the funding towards one big gathering place or multiple smaller screening sites.

Confirmed sites for the Coronation on May 6 include Cardiff Castle, Belfast City Hall, Piece Hall in Halifax, Jubilee Square in Brighton, and Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester. In addition, some screens will also show the Coronation Concert live from Windsor Castle on May 7. Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer believes that the Coronation will be a magical moment that brings people together to celebrate the best of Britain over a special weekend in May.

Apart from the big screens, many councils are expected to host celebratory events including cultural festivals, live music, community workshops, art showcases, and creative games and competitions. The weekend will also feature tens of thousands of Coronation Big Lunches and street parties, and on May 8, the Big Help Out will see thousands of people volunteering to support various causes.

The list of confirmed big screen sites includes major locations in towns and cities in the four nations of the UK, with more locations to be announced in due course. The aim of the big screens is to make it easier for everyone to take part and have a memorable experience to mark this exciting and historic event.
