Royal Warrant Holders Association

Partners

Over 200 Royal Warrant holders will be exhibiting their products, services and skills in the four areas of the Festival: Homes & Gardens, Food & Drink, Design & Technology and Styles, Pursuits & Pastimes. In addition to those who are exhibiting, many more Royal Warrant holders will be represented or participating at the Festival in an exceptional showcase of trade, industry, innovation and craft in Britain today.

From earliest times the monarch and court, like any other household, needed goods and services - from making robes to repairing roofs. Competition for Royal favour was intense, so the monarch had the pick of the country's most skilled and talented trades people.

The first rewards for this loyal service were Royal Charters granted to the trade guilds, later known as Livery Companies. The earliest recorded Royal Charter was granted by Henry II to the Weavers' Company in 1155. In 1394 Dick Whittington helped to obtain a Royal Charter for his own company, the Mercers, who traded in luxury fabrics.

By the 15th Century Royal Tradesmen were recognised with a Royal Warrant of Appointment. An early recipient was William Caxton, England's first printer, who was appointed King's printer in 1476.
