The Coronation Festival was held in the palace’s 30-acre gardens on 11-14 July 2013. The event consisted of two parts: A one day exhibition of more than 200 Royal Warrant holders, followed by an evening celebration of the best performers from the UK and the Commonwealth. The event tied into the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation in 1953 and is being driven by the Royal Warrant Holders Association.
The exhibitor showcase was divided into four sectors: Design and Technology, Food and Drink, Style Pursuits and Pastimes, and Homes and Gardens. Exhibitors included small British firms through to global brands and its three evening event partners Bentley, GlaxoSmithKline and Jaguar Land Rover.
