Where to watch Queen's funeral on big screens and in cinemas in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

Pallbearers carry the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II as it departs St Giles' Cathedral, for Edinburgh Airport
The Queen passed away on Thursday 8 September at Balmoral Castle aged 96.

Live coverage of the Queen's funeral at Westminster Abbey will be shown on big screens in public spaces, religious buildings and in cinemas across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Members of the public will be able to gather at designated venues to watch proceedings on Monday 19 September, as they are televised to a potential audience of billions across the world.

The funeral service is due to begin at 11am and last around an hour.

Many city and town councils have taken the decision to show the funeral to give mourners a place to come together to experience the historic event.

The period of national mourning will last until the day of the state funeral – an official bank holiday in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
