Event Info

Cardiff Castle will host a large screen in the grounds for visitors to watch the Coronation Service – and the processions to and from Westminster Abbey. The Castle will also participate in the official gun salute, as part of a network of salutes, which will take place across the country as the crown is placed on the King’s Head.

104 Regiment Royal Artillery, Regimental Mascots from The Royal Welsh and The 1st Queens Dragon Guards, Welsh Guards and the Regimental Band and Corps of Drums of the Royal Welsh will be in attendance, along with representatives from The Royal Navy and The Royal Air Force. The Coronation event starts at 10am, and the gates will open from 9.30am for those wanting to attend the event. It will remain open to the public throughout the day.

Due to ceremonial proceedings taking place live at the Castle as part of the coronation some elements of the screening of the main coronation event in London may be subtitled only.
