Entrepreneur Cath Kidston will be joining Yorkshire textile mill Hainsworth on its stand at The Queen’s Coronation Festival.

Hainsworth will join more than 200 Royal Warrant Appointed exhibitors for four days from July 11-14 to demonstrate their excellence in beautiful product displays in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace.

Others joining Hainsworth will include Sir Ken Knight, the country’s former chief fire and rescue adviser who recently published a report on the future of the fire services, Wouter Baartmans and Amber Siegel of luxury menswear label Baartmans and Siegel, representatives from fashion designer Paul Smith and leading interiors company Holland & Sherry plus representatives from the Chinese Embassy.

The Coronation Festival will celebrate innovation, excellence and industry showcasing the broad range of fine brands 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.

Hainsworth was awarded its Royal Warrant in 2004 and its Interior Fabrics are used as curtains at Windsor Castle and for the interiors of Buckingham Palace. It is also well known for manufacturing the famous Hainsworth Guard Scarlet cloth which is worn by the Queen’s Guards outside Buckingham Palace and will be on display during this year’s pageantry.

Sixty years ago, Hainsworth provided the iconic cloth for the military to wear at The Queen’s Coronation. In 1953, the Mill provided the Ministry of Supply with cloth to make the uniforms of the Officers of all the Armed Forces involved in the Coronation.A letter sent to Reuben Hainsworth on 19 May 1953 from the Deputy Director of the Ministry of Supply, said: “I have no doubt that you and your work people will all feel immensely proud of the contribution which you have made to this great pageant, and any of you who view the procession or the troops lining the route will be able to say, whether viewed in the flesh or on the television screen, that you had a hand in putting them there – a very worthy record.”

Reuben’s grandson, Tom Hainsworth, MD of Hainsworth, says: “Hainsworth is proud of its heritage and its long-standing connections with the Royal Family and is hugely honoured to have been chosen to take part in this special festival. It will provide us with a great platform to showcase our interior furnishings and also the many other areas of our business.”

Richard Peck, Secretary of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, said: “The event will give the British public the opportunity to see the extraordinary quality and variety of skills, craftsmanship and innovation produced by companies here in Britain, presented to the world in a unique showcase.”

The Coronation Festival will be split into four specific areas: Design and Technology, Food and Drink, Style Pursuits and Pastimes, and Homes and Gardens where Hainsworth will be exhibiting.

60,000 visitors are expected at the Coronation Festival who will be able to wander through a number of stunning sets which represent the best of British creativity.
