Antrim Castle Gardens to host Accession Proclamation for County Antrim



The Accession Proclamation for County Antrim will be held in Antrim Castle Gardens on Sunday 11 September at 3pm.

Led by His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Co. Antrim Mr David McCorkell KStJ , the High Sheriff for County Antrim Mr John Lockett OBE and Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Alderman Stephen Ross, the proclamation will be read out announcing the new King.


The Proclamation for County Antrim will follow the Accession Council which took place today at St James Palace where King Charles III was formally proclaimed Monarch.


Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Alderman Stephen Ross said:


“I am honoured to be part of this momentous occasion taking place in our Borough, announcing the new King.

“The Accession Proclamation is a historic event and we welcome members of the public to come along and witness this.”


A book of Condolence is also available to sign at Antrim Castle Gardens and a designated area for floral tributes.

The Proclamation will be read at 3pm and we ask anyone planning to attend to arrive from 2.30pm.

Please note car parking is not available at Antrim Castle Gardens and we advise you to use Central car park at Castle Mall and all other town centre car parks.
