CREATING BERKSHIRE’S LARGEST CORONATION CROWN
The Lexicon and Bracknell Forest Council are working together to mark the historic occasion of The Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, by helping to create Berkshire’s largest coronation crown.
In order to make this happen, 2023 images are needed, which will be used to create a 14m x 10m spectacular collage in the shape of a crown. To join in, local residents are being asked to up-load an image of themselves, friends, family, pets or community events on The Lexicon website.
Sue Boor, head of marketing at The Lexicon says:
“We want to create something meaningful that the whole community can join in with to recognise this significant moment in our history. Once the collage of the Coronation Crown is complete, visitors to The Lexicon will be able to see what they helped create.”
This unique community created crown will be displayed in Princess Square in the weeks leading-up to the Coronation ceremony, which is due to take place on May 6, 2023.
Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration, says:
“I can’t wait to see the final Coronation Crown in Princess Square; this is going to be a true piece of community art. Whilst the crown will look impressive, it will be wonderful to see people come and seek out their own image within the collage.”
To get involved, simply head to thelexiconbracknell.com/coronation, to upload your images of your friends, family, pets, neighbours, community events etc.
There is no limit on how many images you can submit, however you must have the full consent of any people featured and you must consent to the image being used in the artwork and any subsequent publicity.
Deadline for images is Friday, March 10, 2023.
