The King’s coronation is due to take place in May and the celebrations include a concert that will see performers take to the stage at Windsor Castle.

If you’re still looking for ways to celebrate the occasion, you might be wondering if the public can attend the concert.

The answer to this is yes but tickets have already become available via a BBC ballot which is now closed.

Those who entered the ballot of 10,000 free tickets are yet to hear if they have been successful with the BBC saying that the tickets will not be given out on a first come first served basis.

When will people know if they have tickets or not?

If you entered the ballot and were successful, you’ll find out in late April and more information will be sent your way, the BBC said.

The concert takes place on Sunday, May 7 with spoken word sequences and a world class orchestra included in the line up.

You can find out more information about the coronation concert via the BBC website.

Can you still watch the concert if you don’t have tickets?

If you aren’t able to secure tickets for the concert, you can tune in from home.

The BBC is broadcasting the event live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

When is the King's coronation?

The King’s coronation will take place on May 6 at Westminster Abbey in a televised ceremony that will be shown around the world.

More than 30 big screens will be erected in towns and cities across the UK including: 

  • Cardiff Castle
  • Belfast City Hall
  • Piece Hall, Halifax
  • Jubilee Square, Brighton
  • Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester

Coronation celebrations are planned over an extended bank holiday weekend with “global music icons and contemporary stars” due at Windsor Castle for a concert on Sunday, televised live by the BBC.

On that day, people are invited to gather for a “coronation big lunch” overseen and organised by the Big Lunch team at the Eden Project.

The Queen Consort has been patron of the Big Lunch since 2013.

Monday is a bank holiday and the day has been set aside for volunteering and it’s being billed as “the big help out”.

It aims to highlight the positive impact volunteering has on communities.

The big help out has been organised by the Together Coalition and a wide range of partners such as the Scouts, the Royal Voluntary Service and faith groups from across the UK.
