The coronation of King Charles III, taking place in May, will see 57 screens going up across the UK so the public can watch the historic occasion - see if your area is on the list

The government has announced 57 big screens will be erected in locations around the UK so people can watch King Charles III’s coronation in May, almost 70 years after the coronation of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Officials are set to spend more than £1 million to ensure thousands have the chance to gather together to watch the historic event, with screens to go up in all four nations of the UK.

Culture secretary Lucy Fraser said the coronation, set to be held at Westminster Abbey will be a ‘momentous occasion’ - with world leaders to descend on London to watch the ceremony.

Ms 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.”

As well as the screens going up on the day for thousands to watch the coronation in public, councils will also be hosting their own community events to mark the day, as well as a ‘coronation concert’ on Sunday, May 7.

Originally 30 screens were announced for a number of spots across the UK, but in April the government updated the list to 57, providing further details.
