    Yesterday (12th July), Patrick and I attended the Coronation Festival in the grounds of Buckingham Palace as guests of Brintons. The event was rather like a large trade show featuring a number of companies that have supplied products or services on a regular basis to the Royal households of The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh or The Prince of Wales. Companies interested in becoming a Royal Warrant Holder can apply to do so if they have been supplying the Royal Household for no less than five years. There are around 800 companies that currently hold this prestigious title including Bentley, Jaguar and GlaxoSmithKline.

    It was also nice to see some familiar faces at the event with stands from Brintons, Sanderson (their Directory page is coming soon) and Hypnos. Although we didn’t manage to spent a lot of time on their stands, they looked incredibly busy and I hope it has been a successful event for them.

    The majority of our time was spent on the Brintons stand where Patrick has been captured on camera for an interview with the MD. Patrick will be writing his own article on this as I was out of earshot to hear what was said.

    Overall, a lovely day with glorious weather and a once in a lifetime experience!
