Live coverage of The Queen's funeral will be shown at venues and on big screens across Gloucestershire, when the service takes place at Westminster Abbey on Monday 19 September 2022.

Since Her Majesty passed away on Thursday 8 September 2022, the people of Gloucestershire have paid tribute to her in their masses, sharing their heartfelt sympathy with floral tributes, messages of condolence and attending commemorative services in her memory.

Now, many pubs, community centres and churches across the county have made the decision to screen her funeral, giving mourners the opportunity to gather, reflect and watch the service together.

Please note, this article will be updated by SoGlos's journalists as screenings are announced.
