Harrison Spinks, one of the UK’s most established and innovative bed makers, has been selected for inclusion in the official commemorative album for The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration at Windsor Castle in May 2016.
While The Queen’s actual birthday is on 21st April and her official birthday is on a Saturday in June, The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration will take place from 12th to 15th May 2016 in Home Park, Windsor Castle, and will celebrate The Queen’s life, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs, her involvement with the armed forces and her love of horses.
As part of these celebrations, publisher St James’s House has produced an official commemorative album for the event – the only publication sanctioned and endorsed by the organisers.
“Our commemorative album will be presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at each of the four evenings,” says Richard Freed, chief executive of St James’s House. “Copies of the book will also be distributed to key figures and organisations around the world including heads of state, ambassadors and leaders of industry.”
In addition to celebrating the life and reign of The Queen, the publication showcases a selection of organisations in the UK and Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain. These organisations are drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres, and include Royal Charter holders, Royal Warrant holders and recipients of the Queen’s Awards. Collectively, they provide insights into the Commonwealth today and into the UK’s role in the wider world.
In the area of bed manufacturing, one of the organisations selected to appear in the publication is Yorkshire-based luxury bed makers Harrison Spinks.
“Harrison Spinks has a strong heritage in manufacturing luxury beds and we were approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” says Simon Spinks, MD of Harrison Spinks. “We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it’s a great honour to be part of this historic celebration.”
Harrison Spinks has a well-earned reputation as a leader within the bed industry due to its innovative spring technology that delivers unrivalled spring counts and sustainable approach to natural fillings which are grown on the company’s own 300-acre farm in Yorkshire. Both of which have been recognised with two Queen’s Awards in Enterprise for Innovation and Sustainable Development.
Asked about the participation of Harrison Spinks, Richard Freed of St James’s House says: “As the official publisher for The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, we have been entrusted with telling the Queen’s story. We were also tasked with finding suitable editorial partners for the book, and we were delighted when Harrison Spinks agreed to help us mark this important milestone.”
