Coronation Crown and Branding in Market Square - April 2023 - King Charles III

Nottingham’s Old Market Square council house was adorned with a replica crown last week.

The crown, put up to celebrate the upcoming coronation, will light up each and every evening in the runup to the event.

Nottingham will join other cities in the UK such as Blackpool and Edinburgh in “Lighting up the Nation”.

It is being re-used following the jubilee celebrations last year, and measures 4.2m wide by 3.8m high.

The crown was constructed by Nottingham-based scenic artists Makers, who have over 30 years’ experience in art fabrication and model-making.

Patrick Loy, Head of Events at Nottingham City Council said: “It’s great to be able to once again dress and light the Council House in red, white and blue to enable Nottingham to mark the Coronation of King Charles III.

“There are limited tickets remaining for the Coronation Concert screening, so we encourage people to book quickly to enjoy this picnic-style screening event in the beautiful castle grounds.”
