A new touring light show will begin at the Tower of London, and it will display the splendour of coronations and the Crown Jewels.

The immersive light show Crown and Coronation will launch in November at the Tower of London. It was 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.

After a nine-day run in London, the light show will travel to some of the country’s most famous landmarks and locations.

Charles Farris, Public Historian for the History of the Monarchy at Historic Royal Palaces, said, “The Crown Jewels hold deep religious, historic, and cultural significance, and we are really excited to be bringing this magnificent collection to people around the UK in this historic coronation year. Through spectacular imagery projected throughout the historic inner ward of the Tower of London, and an emotive soundscape, Crown and Coronation will immerse visitors in the rich history of the British monarchy, Coronations, and the Crown Jewels. After a highly anticipated run at the Tower of London, we look forward to taking the show on tour around some of the most iconic buildings in the UK in 2024.”

Peter Walker, Sculptor and Artist at Luxmuralis, said, “We are delighted to be working with Historic Royal Palaces on this spectacular light show, which will transform one of the world’s most remarkable buildings into an articulating and evolving display of historic images, awash with light and accompanied by compositions which chart changes to music over the period.

“The Tower of London has been the setting for almost 1000 years of historic moments, but for the very first time, it will also become the canvas upon which that history and heritage is portrayed. It is equally important that we then take this work around the country, and we are delighted to be re-curating the artwork for some of the UK’s most remarkable locations.”
