HIS MAJESTY THE KING WILL ATTEND THE KING’S FOUNDATION AWARDS

Tuesday 11th June 2024

His Majesty The King, Royal Founding President of the King’s Foundation, will attend the charity’s inaugural awards ceremony at St James’s Palace, an event set to become an annual fixture in the King’s Foundation calendar.

The awards are an opportunity to celebrate the exemplary work of students, teachers, alumni and partners who have contributed to the foundation’s work across a range of sectors. There are nine awards categories, culminating in the King presenting The King Charles III Harmony Award, given to an individual to recognise their long-term commitment to the mission of The King’s Foundation.

The awards ceremony will feature live demonstrations of the King’s Foundation’s education programmes, showcasing furniture making, woodworking and embroidery, as well as the charity’s architecture and placemaking work. His Majesty will speak to students and ambassadors at these demonstrations, hearing how the King’s Foundation has supported learning and entrepreneurship across traditional arts, textiles, rural skills, and health and wellbeing.

As part of this, the King will see the impact of the King’s Foundation education programmes from the Snowdon School of Furniture, the Métier d’Arts Embroidery Fellowship in partnership with CHANEL and Le19M and the Future Textiles offering.
