Weldon and Corian® help Queen to celebrate at her Coronation Festival

Weldon and Corian® help Queen to celebrate at her Coronation Festival

Last month the Queen held her Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace.

The festival was held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen's Coronation. This event was hosted by the Royal Warrant Holders Association, and brought together - for the first time on this scale - over 200 companies who hold Royal Warrants of Appointment.

According to the Festival themselves the point was to "Promote the very best of UK plc, the Festival celebrated innovation, excellence and industry through trade and craft.

As a very proud Royal Warrant Holder, Weldon were asked to participate at the Festival. In conjunction with three other royal warrant holding companies: NEJ Stevenson, (bespoke furniture and joinery), Preedy Glass, and Veritas, (jewellery and giftware), they created an eye-catching stand fit for a Queen, for each to showcase their products.

Over 60,000 visitors, many who were the paying public, saw the very best combination of British tradition and innovation at the Festival.

The centerpiece of the Weldon stand was their Union Jack flag parquetry floor which was designed and made by their own in-house team specially for this event. We were delighted to see Bone Corian® incorporated into the flooring. The combination of wood and Corian® gives a unique and eye-catching finish.

Corian® has been used in flooring for many years now, from domestic settings to the high-intensity focus of nightclub dance floors. As Corian® is so hard-wearing it is the perfect material for flooring, not to mention the fact that it is so easy to keep clean.

On this occasion the stand was visited by both Her Majesty the Queen and HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. We can only assume that they were suitably impressed by this show of all that is the Best of British.
