Bibliophile in Queen's Coronation Festival
29.11.12 | Lisa Campbell
Mail order book service Bibliophile will display its books at the Queen’s Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace next summer.
The company, which has been running since 1978, is being driven by the Royal Warrant Association, with Royal Warrants given to businesses that have supplied goods or services to the Queen or members of the Royal Family for more than five years.
The Coronation Festival will take place on 11th-14th July in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
A spokesperson for Bibliophile said: “Bibliophile will have a unique opportunity to display our fantastic range of bargain books and show the high standards of our special bookselling company...We will be rubbing shoulders and boosting our reputation alongside 200 Royal Warrant Holders from cartwheel and cheese makers to welly and fence manufacturers, craftspeople, perfumiers and corporations like House of Fraser in our marquee.”
The invitation came about after 20 years providing books to the royal libraries. Only two other booksellers from the publishing industry hold a Warrant: Hatchards of Piccadilly and Heywood’s Antiquarian of Mayfair.
Tickets are open to the public to buy in December.
