On 7 May 2023, a concert was held at Windsor Castle to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. The event was produced, staged, and broadcast by the BBC to over 100 countries around the world. Liteup worked alongside Lighting Designer, Nigel Catmur and Broadcast Production Director, Steve Nolan to ensure that the evening was enjoyed by the 20,000 live audience on site and millions watching at home.

“This project required collaboration and choosing people with the right skill sets and personalities for the job, and while there were many challenges, dealing with these and taking them in our stride was also very rewarding,” emphasised Liteup’s Marc Callaghan, reflecting on the feat.
