ITV have announced a new Coronation Street Experience, offering fans access to replica sets, historic props and costumes from the long-running soap.

The exhibition is set to open on June 10 and will be open seven days a week.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take a seat in Roy’s Rolls – the cafe owned by Roy Cropper – or stand behind the bar at The Rovers Return.

The Coronation Street Experience will complement ITV ’s award-winning 90-minute tour, which launched in 2014 and has attracted fans from all over the world.

Guest experience manager Neil Currie said: “We know that fans of Coronation Street want to get up close to some of the props and sets that they see on screen, be it Deirdre’s infamous glasses or inside The Rovers Return.

“The new exhibition gives us the chance to extend the weekend tour experience as it will be included for every visitor.

“Having this kind of exhibition floor also gives us the chance to constantly update and change things alongside the programme’s on air stories, once a storyline has played out on your TV screen, we’ll be updating the props and costumes along the way.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer fans of Coronation Street an even more immersive experience with the launch of the Coronation Street Experience and can’t wait for our first guests to arrive.”

In addition to the replica sets and original props, the tour itself has evolved to include access to new sets such as Weatherfield Precinct, letting visitors discover even more secrets from the show.

Crown Jewels light and sound show to tour UK and bring magic of Coronation to millions

Crown Jewels to be projected onto Tower of London before touring iconic landmarks across the four nations

Tower of London

  • The move is part of events to mark Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort’s Coronation celebrations which will see more than 100,000 people attend live screenings of the event next month at 57 UK sites
  • It is also revealed today that 50,000 Coronation Big Lunches to mark the event are expected

A new immersive light and sound show displaying the Crown Jewels on iconic UK landmarks will tour the country as part of plans to tell the story of coronations to thousands of people.

‘Crown and Coronation’, produced by Historic Royal Palaces and Luxmuralis, will explore the history of coronations in an immersive visual and musical show which it is planning to project on some of the country’s most famous landmarks and locations.

The programme will launch by being projected onto the Tower of London in Autumn before touring the length and breadth of the country.

In addition, the Government has today confirmed additional screening sites for the Their Majesties’ Coronation, bringing the total to 57 in locations including Ely Cathedral, Trinity Market in Hull and Alnwick Castle, Northumberland, meaning that more than 100,000 people will be able to watch the Coronation live in their hometowns.

To mark the Coronation weekend, communities are being encouraged to come together for street parties on the Sunday and across the UK more than 32,000 Coronation Big Lunch packs have been ordered with around 50,000 neighbourhood events, attended by millions of people, being planned. Eighty per cent of those signing up are first-time organisers. Plans include a youth centre Big Lunch in Shetland to community focused celebrations across the water in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. A community carnival is being planned in Morecambe and a Big Lunch paddle board will take place in Bude, Cornwall.

There will also be hundreds of thousands of opportunities to take part in The Big Help Out on the additional Bank Holiday granted to celebrate the Coronation on Monday 8th May. The project aims to ensure the Coronation leaves a lasting legacy in communities by inspiring and recruiting a new generation of volunteers. Opportunities include the chance to volunteer in your local community, with everyone from the Scouts, Royal Voluntary Service and Guide Dogs to the smallest local volunteering groups already signed up.

Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said:

The Coronation marks the beginning of a new chapter in our magnificent national story. It promises to be full of memorable experiences for the whole country, with millions of us bearing witness to a moment of history for the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
Every part of the United Kingdom should have a chance to see and feel the joy of the Coronation, and this giant light projection will give communities the chance to see precious centuries-old Royal treasures up close over the next year.
With less than a month to go until Coronation weekend, there are countless opportunities for people to be part of it - whether it’s watching the service on a big screen in your community, hosting your own Big Lunch for family, friends and neighbours or volunteering in The Big Help Out to give something back.

The Coronation of Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort will take place on Saturday 6 May at Westminster Abbey followed by a spectacular Coronation Concert held at Windsor Castle on Sunday 7 May. On Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, the public are encouraged to come together to take part in celebratory Coronation Big Lunches and in a national day of volunteering as part of the Big Help Out. Events taking place across the country are detailed on the Government’s Coronation map which is available on coronation.gov.uk .

The programme of events will reflect the modern, diverse, multi-faith United Kingdom and promote the themes of youth, community, diversity, and sustainability.

Lindsey Brummitt, Programme Director at the Eden Project, home of The Big Lunch, said:

It’s fantastic to see such an appetite for connection and community across the UK and it is growing every day!
What makes the Coronation Big Lunch on 6-8 May weekend ‘Big’ is everyone, everywhere doing the same thing on the same weekend - sharing friendship, food and fun with their neighbours and communities.
You can have a sarnie with a neighbour, connect over a cuppa, host a back garden BBQ or put tables down the street - how you decide to join in is up to you.
It is a fantastic way to celebrate where you live, be part of history and even fundraise for a charity or cause you care about. Bust out the bunting, knock on a neighbours door and get to know one another a little better over a tasty snack - it’s such an easy way to be part of everything!

Matt Hyde, CEO of the Scouts, said:

It’s just about a month to go until The Big Help Out – The event will provide so many opportunities for new volunteers to find their passion and to support causes that make a difference in their local communities. Research tells us that volunteering is good for you in so many ways so if you have not signed up yet check out the app and get involved and change your life and others lives forever.

Catherine Johnstone CBE, Chief Executive of Royal Voluntary Service, said:

With one month to go before The Big Help Out, there is plenty of time for people to explore the abundance of exciting volunteering opportunities in their area.
Royal Voluntary Service has a real mix of activities available in the app, from helping to run craft and activity sessions or providing a friendly service in one of our retail outlets, to helping decorate a hall to host a Coronation lunch for 100 people! And that’s just us.
There are thousands of unique options available from other charities and organisations, big and small, so there is something to inspire everyone to join in and lend a hand.

'Thrilling' scenes in Northern Ireland for the King's Coronation

  • Published 6 May 2023
  • Coronation of King Charles III

Eleanor Bruce Cassan and her daughter Brenda McAvoy

People across Northern Ireland have been celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III with community gatherings, tea parties and live screenings .

The leaders of Northern Ireland's five main political parties are in London for the occasion.

It is the first coronation since the King's late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, was crowned in 1953.

A 21-gun salute rang out from Hillsborough Castle in County Down to mark the crowning of the king.

Many royalists have travelled from NI to London to get a glimpse of the King on the Mall, in London.

Coronation city hall

Dame Mary Peters was among the first people on parade behind the King in her role as Lady Companion of the Order of the Garter.

The Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, the Most Revd John McDowell, presented the Sovereign's Orb at the service.

Seven pupils from Methodist College in Belfast were among the choir performing at the King's Coronation service in Westminster Abbey on Saturday.

Among the guests to attend the Coronation at Westminster Abbey was Irish President Michael D Higgins and his wife, Sabina, who also attended a reception for heads of state in Buckingham Palace on Friday evening.

Leaders of the main political parties in Northern Ireland - Sinn Féin vice-president Michelle O'Neill and her colleague Alex Maskey, the speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly; DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, his colleague Lord Nigel Dodds; Alliance leader Naomi Long; UUP leader Doug Beattie and SDLP leader Colm Eastwood - were also in attendance.

County Down

21-gun salute at Hillsborough Castle

Royal Hillsborough lived up to its recently-granted royal status in playing a central role in marking the King's Coronation in Northern Ireland.

The grounds of Hillsborough Castle, the official residence of the monarch in Northern Ireland, hosted about 2,000 people to watch the ceremony on a big screen.

At the moment King Charles was crowned at Westminster Abbey, the cannons were sounded by reservists from the 206 (Ulster) Battery of the 105th Regiment of the Royal Artillery.

Ass Com Matt Wills, the most senior Army reservist officer in Northern Ireland, said it was "a fantastic day".

"What a day to celebrate and what a venue to be at," he said.

"It is an absolute privilege to be here and a privilege for the Army reserve to play such an important role on a day like today."

Husband and wife George and Victoria Stewart

At Braniel Community Centre in east Belfast, some who have now lived through two coronations gathered to watch the service at a pensioners' tea party.

The lights were dimmed and a small group watched on a projector as King Charles was crowned.

Eleanor Bruce Cassan said it was "thrilling" to be watching the ceremony on a big screen along with others from the community.

She said she loves the Royal Family and wouldn't have a bad word to say about them.

Mural

Husband and wife George and Victoria Stewart watched the ceremony with their daughter Julie Hamilton.

Neither of them watched the late queen's coronation on television at the time "because we couldn't afford one", Mrs Stewart said.

But they fondly remember celebrating the occasion with a street party.

In west Belfast, residents from the Springmartin and Highfield estates celebrated with a family fun day, funded by the National Lottery.

Philip Brannan, from the Highspring Residents' Group, said it was a great opportunity for the community to come together.

On the nearby Shankill Road, a mural to the King was unveiled.

County Londonderry

"King" Leslie Campbell and "Queen" Gordon Riddles enjoying the family fun day in Tullyally

In Tullyally, outside Londonderry, friends Leslie Campbell and Gordon Riddles decided to dress up as king and queen for the day and attend the street party.

It was staged outside Tullyally community centre and families enjoyed food and entertainment in rows of tables decked out in red, white and blue.

Union flags and bunting fluttered in the breeze as the sun shone all afternoon.

Bouncy castles proved hugely popular with the scores of children in attendance.

Leslie Campbell said he was reflecting seriously on the monarchy and admitted he still hasn't got over the loss of Queen Elizabeth II. But his mood improved during the day.

"It's one of the best days of my life. I've been mourning since the Queen died and it's been very, very sad. But today is brilliant with our new King," he said.

Community worker Catherine Cook

Community Worker Catherine Cooke who helped organise the fun day said people were overjoyed to be celebrating the Coronation.

"It's great to see everyone coming out for this fantastic atmosphere," she said.

"The mood is quite buoyant and everyone is here to have a good time and enjoy themselves. Today is a day of celebration and to rejoice that we are still part of the United Kingdom."

County Fermanagh

In the most westerly county in the UK - County Fermanagh - locals kicked off the celebrations on Friday night with a parade in Lisbellaw.

Elsie Tilly and Alex Wilson with King Charles Spaniel called Lottie watching the parade in Lisbellaw

There were royal-themed floats, organised by the Derryclavin Pipe Band and children dressed up as kings and queens.

County Tyrone

The village was awash with colour during the Coronation service

Local people took to the streets in the small rural village of Donemana in County Tyrone to celebrate the Coronation and the place was awash with colour and spectacle.

Lisnaragh Road, just off Main Street, was closed so families could sit in deckchairs and watch a band parade.

Many were delighted to have their picture taken alongside a giant cardboard cut out of King Charles

Many dressed up for the day in Union flag dresses as red, white and blue bunting and Union flags adorned the lamp posts.

Pictures of King Charles were prominent, too, and in the local Orange Hall you could even have your picture taken alongside a giant cardboard figure of the King.

Community Worker David Buchanan was delighted the sun was shining on Donemana.

David Buchanan said he was delighted with the turnout in Donemana.

"This day has been a long time in the planning. We got the ball rolling with our funding application last November and we were determined to put on a great day.

"We've had many meetings and have now put on a host of activities for everyone. I'm delighted with the fantastic turnout because, as we know, many people in Donemana are huge supporters of the Royal family and our new King."

Many people in the village were getting into the fun spirit

With a family fun day consisting of crazy golf, bouncy castles, face painting and children's rides - plus lots of ice cream - the party is likely to go on for some time yet.

Meanwhile, an anti-monarchy demonstration was held along the Falls Road in west Belfast as the Coronation got under way in London.
