Apollo Fire Detectors has announced it will be taking part in The Coronation Festival - a one-off event for holders of Royal Warrants to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation.

The Festival (11-14th July) will celebrate innovation, excellence and industry showcasing a broad range of brands, including Apollo, 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.

Apollo was awarded its Royal Warrant in 2009 and it will join over 200 Royal Warrant Holders at this unique event.

The Festival will be open to members of the public from Friday, 12th to Sunday, 14th July. There will be a Royal Preview on Thursday, 11th July for invited guests, including Members of the Royal Family, charities, patronages, media, armed forces, inward investors and overseas trade missions, and guests of the Royal Warrant Holders Association and the Royal Household.

In the evening, the Gardens, with Buckingham Palace as the back-drop, will host a magnificent performance of music and dance.
Warren Rees, Managing Director (EMEA) of Apollo comments: “We are delighted to be part of The Coronation Festival. It will provide us with a great platform to showcase our detection products and we are extremely proud to be a holder of a Royal Warrant which have always been regarded as hallmarks of quality, excellence and service.” Tickets to the Festival and Evening Gala can now be purchased through the dedicated event website
