Event Description

Feel totally immersed as you step inside the cathedral, enveloped in scenes of iconic monarchs, breathtaking coronation ceremonies and the Crown Jewels. Invite family and friends for a night to remember.

Historic Royal Palaces have partnered with Luxmuralis Artist Collaboration to create an immersive sound and light show for all ages to enjoy. It will bring the spectacle, significance and shared experience of Coronations to life, demonstrating the pivotal role of the Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection, within the ceremony.

The show will feature stunning imagery, in exquisite detail, spanning across the centuries. Visitors will journey through more than 1000 years of history, encompassing the reigns of some of the most famous English monarchs including William the Conqueror, Elizabeth I, and Queen Victoria. Just like medieval and Tudor rulers, visitors will be swept up in the spectacle of the coronation procession.

When you walk past the Old Minster to enter the cathedral, you'll be walking past the very place that Edward the Confessor's Coronation took place (by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York on Easter day, 3rd April 1043). When you're inside the cathedral, watching the projections on the cathedral's historic 'Great Screen' you'll be standing in the steps of Queen Mary I (Mary Tudor) and Prince Philip II of Spain on their wedding day in 1554. Look up in the Quire, and you'll see mortuary chests, containing the bones of Kings and Queens.
