Crown and Coronation is an immersive light and sound show bringing the spectacle of the Crown Jewels and Coronations to life and demonstrating the pivotal role of the Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection, within the Coronation ceremony. Following its launch at the Tower of London in November 2023 the show is embarking on a UK wide tour of famous landmarks and locations, including Wells Cathedral.

Crown and Coronation has been created by Historic Royal Palaces – the charity that cares for the Tower of London – in partnership with Luxmuralis, as part of an artistic collaboration between artist Peter Walker and composer David Harper. The show will feature stunning imagery spanning more than 1000 years of history, enhanced by the magnificence of Wells Cathedral, where the projections and soundscape will sweep through the building.
