The Coronation of King Charles will be streamed from Westminster Abbey to Princes Street Garden, as will the Coronation Concert from Windsor Castle the following day.

The Coronation will begin at 11am, with the service finishing at 1pm.

Edinburgh’s screening will coincide with celebrations taking place around the country as the nation marks the crowning of the King alongside Camilla, the Queen Consort, with a special extended bank holiday weekend.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11am but access to the screening area will open from 10am.

Entry is free and un-ticketed.

The big screen has been supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

People are encouraged to bring their own picnics, however Scott’s café will be open and can provide take-away food and beverages.

The screening will take place outdoors, so dress for the weather, and bring plenty of water. Toilet facilities will be available and there will be limited seats so bring blankets or chairs.

Extra litter bins will be in place and BBQs will not be permitted.  

To mark HM The King's Coronation, communities and citizens have applied for street closures to celebrate this historic event.

Concert in the Garden

On Sunday 7 May, the screen will remain in place and broadcast The Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle to spectators in the Gardens. The Coronation Concert will bring global music icons and contemporary stars together in celebration of the historic occasion.

As a new Royal era begins, residents are also invited to share their memories and record well wishes for the new sovereign from Tuesday 2 May in the online Book of Congratulations.

Physical books will also be available at the City Chambers and Central Library from Tuesday 2 May until Tuesday 9 May from 10am until 5pm.

In his role as His Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant, Edinburgh’s Lord Provost Robert Aldridge will be representing the City of Edinburgh at the proceedings in London.
