Green Fuels at Buckingham Palace
The Gardens at BUCKINGHAM PALACE were the venue for a one-off event this summer for holders of Royal Warrants to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. Green Fuels took part in the four day celebration between the 11th and 14th July 2013 and CEO James Hygate was invitde to the Royal preview day on the 11th.
The Coronation Festival was a celebration of innovation, excellence and industry. The event showcased the broad range of fine brands, including Green Fuels, 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.
Green Fuels was awarded its Royal Warrant in January 2013 and its prestigious Royal appointment now sees Green Fuels join over 200 Royal Warrant Holders at this unique event. Green Fuels CEO James Hygate was interviewed live on BBC news at the event to talk about the impact of being granted a Royal Warrant on Green Fuels.
The Coronation Festival was 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.
In the evening, the Gardens, with Buckingham Palace as the back-drop, hosted a magnificent performance of music and dance. The Coronation Gala celebrated cultural life during the reign of Her Majesty, showcasing the achievements and personality of this extraordinary age.
