After months of preparation, weeks of apprehension and many sleepless nights, the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace has finally been and gone. And with over 60,000 visitors spread over four days in the heat of a typically un-British summer, what a busy and exciting time it was for us!
For those of you who don’t know, the Coronation Festival was a one-off event held in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace this past weekend in celebration of the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. This Festival brought together over 200 companies who hold a Royal Warrant of Appointment, giving them the opportunity to showcase and celebrate the excellence of their trade or craft.
From chimney sweeps to barbers, horse-bedding suppliers and chocolatiers, the Coronation Festival really gave the public an idea of the range of companies who supply goods and services to the Royal Family.
