Buckingham Palace garden to host festival for royal warrant holders

The Gardens at BUCKINGHAM PALACE will be the venue for a one-off event next summer for holders of Royal Warrants to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation.

BEDMAX Shavings  will be taking part in the four day celebration between the 11th and 14th July 2013.

The Coronation Festival will celebrate innovation, excellence and industry showcasing the broad range of fine brands, including BEDMAX Shavings, which have earned the recognition of a Royal Warrant  over the years.

Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to the Households of The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh or The Prince of Wales Warrants have always been regarded as hallmarks of quality, excellence and service.

BEDMAX Shavings was awarded its Royal Warrant in January 2008 and its prestigious Royal appointment now sees BEDMAX Shavings join over 200 Royal Warrant Holders at this unique event.

The Coronation Festival will be split into four specific showcase areas : Design and Technology; Food and Drink; Style Pursuits and Pastimes; Homes and Gardens. There will also be a section for The Queen  Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST), the charitable arm of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, which helps financially disadvantaged, experienced crafts people to further their skills through the funding of further education and training.

The Festival will be open to members of the public from Friday, 12th to Sunday, 14th July. There will be a Royal Preview on Thursday, 11th July for invited guests, including Members of the Royal Family, charities, patronages, media, armed forces, inward investors and overseas trade missions, and guests of the Royal Warrant Holders Association and the Royal Household.

In the evening, the Gardens, with Buckingham Palace as the back-drop, will host a magnificent performance of music and dance. The Coronation Gala will celebrate cultural life during the reign of Her Majesty, showcasing the achievements and personality of this extraordinary age. The performances will chime with the themes of the Festival - tradition, excellence and innovation - featuring a range of superb home-grown UK talent with a focus on youth, as well as talent from across the Commonwealth - a unique, energetic and entertaining show for this very special celebration.
