Thousands of people across Britain will be able to come together to celebrate King Charles's Coronation in public, with big screens set to be installed in towns and cities in all four nations.

More than 30 locations have been chosen from Bournemouth to Belfast, with more than £1 million being made available for the project by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Some stand-out locations already confirmed include Cardiff Castle, Belfast City Hall and Picadilly Gardens in Manchester.

Commenting on the project, Lucy Frazer, the Culture Secretary, 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."

A celebratory weekend of festivities will see local authorities host events including cultural festivals, live music and community workshops.

The investiture ceremony will be followed by a Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle on Sunday, May 7. Iconic locations across the UK will be lit up using projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations.

Thousands of Coronation Big Lunches and street parties will also be held in the UK and across the Commonwealth, with communities coming together to celebrate the occasion.

And people across Britain are being encouraged to take part in the Big Help Out volunteering scheme on Monday, May 8.
