Brighton will be among more than 30 open-air locations in the UK to host a big screen showing King Charles III's coronation.

The big screen in the city's Jubilee Square will showcase the broadcast from Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May.

The King and Camilla, the Queen Consort will be crowned during the ceremony.

Windsor Castle will host a concert the following day to continue the celebrations, featuring a wide mix of music, dancing and a laser lightshow.

More than £1 million was made available by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport for the big screens.

Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said: "These big screens, in major locations in towns and cities in the four nations of the UK, will make it easier for everyone to take part and have a memorable experience to mark this exciting and historic event."

Residents in Brighton and Hove who were planning to host a street party had to send an application to the council by 10 March.
