Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has commissioned a bespoke robe specially designed and created for the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty the Queen Consort Camilla. 22 primary schools created colourful squares of fabric, the design of which reflects their local area, and these were incorporated into the robe by Angela Turkington, a local textile artist with vast experience in costume design.
The robe is currently on display at Mossley Mill and is available to view from 9am-5pm Monday – Friday. It will stay at Mossley Mill until 23 May before it moves to our other civic buildings; Ballyclare Town Hall , Antrim Civic Centre and Antrim Castle Gardens. The robe will then go on tour around all of the schools who participated in this project from September.
