Big screen on Ipswich Cornhill to show the Queen’s funeral

Published13th September 2022

A big screen will be showing the funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II on the Cornhill, Ipswich on Monday 19 September.

The screening of the funeral at Westminster Abbey will start at 10am.

Limited seating will be provided for people who need it but people are also invited to bring their own chairs.

Mayor of Ipswich, Councillor John Cook, says:

“After the huge interest in the Suffolk Proclamation event that saw around 6,500 people gather in the Cornhill on Sunday, the Council has decided it would be good to provide an opportunity for people to come together and watch the Queen’s funeral on Monday.”

HM Lord-Lieutenant of Suffolk, Clare, Countess of Euston:

“In view of the enormous numbers that attended the Reading of the Proclamation on Sunday I think this is a very good idea and it will give the people of Suffolk an opportunity to gather together to mourn our Great Queen.”
