TV Licence Fee suspended for Coronation screenings

The Coronation of His Majesty Charles III, King of the United Kingdom, and Her Majesty The Queen Consort takes place on Saturday 6th May, followed by The Coronation Concert on Sunday 7th May 2023.

A TV licence dispensation has been given for the coverage.

This dispensation allows events to be organised for communities in venues where TV is not usually watched to screen live programmes throughout the weekend without needing to purchase a licence. This includes, for example, community venues such as churches, town halls, community centres, libraries and streets across Britain as well as commercial premises acting as community venues such as concert halls, performing arts venues, cinemas and shops. It also applies to any outdoor venues which have the facilities to screen.

BBC coverage should be free to watch, so please don’t charge anyone for the viewing. Even if your screening is taking place at a venue which normally has a commercial purpose you must not charge for tickets, and the public should be allowed to bring their own food and drink.

If you are holding an event, list it here. If you would like to make your venue available, list it here.
