Exeter City Council will be screening the State Funeral of Her Majesty The Queen upon her death.
The viewing of the State Funeral will take place at Northernhay Gardens where the National Two Minutes Silence will also take place after the Funeral service. The Lord Mayor and distinguished guests will be in attendance.
The Gardens will be open from 9:00am until 2:00pm. The funeral will start at 11:00am with the National Two Minute Silence at 11:55am.
Unfortunately there is a limit to the numbers permitted in the Gardens. Once we have reached the maximum capacity we regret that we will not be able to permit anyone else in. Refreshments will be available on site but we regret that no alcohol is permitted into the Gardens.
The State Funeral can also be viewed at Sandy Park at the Exeter City Football Club.
Viewing of the State Funeral will of course be shown on normal television for those that wish to remain at home.
