A Royal Visit!
19/09/2016 - Watts & Morgan
It's not every day you get a Royal visit to the office! On Saturday 17th September, Bridgend Town celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Bridgend Market Charter. Bridgend stepped back 500 years to 1516 when King Henry VIII granted a Royal Market Charter to the town.
The town centre was transformed into a typical Tudor market of the era with over 20 demonstrations and activities commonplace to the 16th Century.
We were delighted to be granted an audience with the King and his sixth wife Katherine Parr and of course we made sure we had the Royal favourite Mead for the occasion.
