Coronation Week at WES

There are few events more momentous than the coronation of a new monarch. As anticipation filled the air ahead of King Charles III’s grand coronation, the Worlds End Studios team came together to organize a delightful picnic for our clients in celebration of this historic occasion.

It was important for us to commemorate this special event in a way that highlighted the historic importance of this event as well as our strong sense of community. The preparations were filled with excitement as we gathered to discuss the decorations, food, and activities that would make the occasion truly memorable.

On the sunny day of the picnic, our front courtyard was transformed into a vibrant hub of activity. Our clients and team members alike arrived, each carrying their own delectable contributions to the feast.

The highlight of the picnic was undoubtedly the diverse array of dishes that adorned the picnic tables. From traditional English delicacies like finger sandwiches and pork pies to international foods such as fried bread and guacamole, the spread represented the diverse backgrounds and tastes of our community.

The event offered an opportunity for our clients to mark the coronation whilst forging new friendships and deepening existing connections. We had a variety of games and activities on offer to further encourage our clients to get involved. To participate in any of the games, clients were prompted to donate some money to the Prince’s Trust – a charity set up by King Charles III himself which seeks to give assistance and support to young people entering the working world.

We had a host of traditional English funfair inspired games on offer such as ‘guess how many sweets in the jar’, ‘royal bingo’ and a hook a duck raffle wherein the number on the bottom of the ducks corresponded with how many raffle tickets you were allocated. Prizes ranged from a high tea for two at the National Portrait gallery along with an hour-long tour of the collections, coronation mugs and bottles of wine.

The festivities did not end with the picnic. The following day, we organized a lively Pimm’s night to continue the celebrations. Everyone came together, raising glasses filled with the refreshing and iconic British cocktail. The Pimm’s night added an extra layer of merriment to the overall experience, further solidifying the community spirit we had celebrated the previous day during the picnic.

Hosting a picnic in celebration of King Charles III’s impending coronation was a delightful and memorable experience for the entire WES community. It was a testament to the bonds that unite us, and it reaffirmed the power of shared traditions and festivities in fostering a strong sense of community.
