Corgi are very pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting at the Coronation Festival being held at Buckingham Palace this July.
The Festival, which takes place over four days will celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. This exciting and unique event, hosted by the Royal Warrant Holder’s Association, will bring together – for the first time on this scale – over 200 companies that hold Royal Warrants of Appointment. Promoting the very best of UK PLC, the Festival will celebrate the extraordinary quality and variety of skills, craftsmanship and innovation produced by companies here in Britain.
As proud Royal Warrant holders, we are delighted to be part of the Coronation Festival. It will provide us with a great platform to showcase our dedication to manufacturing hosiery and knitwear of the very highest quality, using the finest materials and age-old manufacturing techniques handed down through the generations.
Visitors to the Corgi exhibition stand at the event will be treated to a live hosiery-making demonstration by the great-grandson of the company’s founder, Rhys Jones. We will also be exhibiting a new limited edition range, specially developed to coincide with the Festival, as well as socks and knitwear from our current range – designed and produced in Carmarthenshire but sold all over the world.
The Festival will be open to members of the public from Friday, 12th to Sunday, 14th July with around 60,000 visitors expected to attend. For further information on the Festival and to book tickets, go to www.coronationfestival.com
