Businesses and organisations across the UK are preparing to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III which takes place at Westminster Abbey in London on 6th May 2023. The fast-approaching occasion is one that many will want to commemorate, not just on the day itself but also in the run-up to the event.
With just 6 weeks to go until the monarch ascends to the throne, now is the perfect time to start planning how your company, charity or community group can get involved in the celebrations.
Here are some suggestions how you can mark the special celebration with colleagues, customers and suppliers alike …
- Host a corporate coronation celebration. Organising an official event for clients and industry experts to attend is a great way to promote your business and continue building vital customer relations. It‘s the perfect opportunity for colleagues and staff to network with the people your business relies upon in an environment that’s both topical and social. Products such as t-shirts, name badges, lanyards and folders are commonly ordered for use at corporate events and provide a take-home momentum for all who attend.
- Refresh usual merchandise with a commemorative touch. Update staple promotional products and office stationary items, such as pens, notepads and mugs, by incorporating the official coronation logo within your design. The official emblem has been created especially for the King's coronation and depicts the flora of the four nations of the United Kingdom; the rose of England, the thistle of Scotland, the daffodil of Wales and the shamrock of Northern Ireland. Together they form the shape of St Edward's crown in a smart blue, red and white colourway. Including the logo with your design is a great way to acknowledge the occasion and show that your organisation is in-tune with current times.
- Sponsor community celebrations. Thousands of community parties and charity events have been organised across the UK, including many street parties, afternoon teas and fetes. Businesses and voluntary organisations have the unique opportunity to incorporate their own branding alongside the coronation logo; wether on decorative essentials such as bunting and flags or practical items such as napkins and tablecloths. It’s worth noting that local authorities across the UK are offering lottery-funded grants to schools, charities and businesses who can prove their coronation event benefits the local community in a spirit of both kindness and unity. The grants can be used to purchase promotional merchandise for use at community-focused events taking place on or around the weekend of 6-8th May. At Yo-Promotions we offer a fantastic range of promotional merchandise ideal for a variety of coronation celebrations. Crucially, all of our products are competitively priced to ensure any grants you receive are maximised and used effectively. Be sure to check your local government website for further details, including how to apply.
