Celebrating 50 Years - begins with Royal Visit

We are incredibly honoured and proud to announce that Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have accepted our invitation to visit our studios in Abergavenny. They will be visitng us as a part of their annual summer tour around Wales.

This year marks the beginning of a series of celebrations of 50 Years of Charles and Patricia Lester being in business. The celebrations will begin with the visit by Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall on Thursday 9th July 2015 when they will be unveiling a plaque to mark the occasion.

Their Royal Highnesses are being taken on a guided tour of the Lesters’ studio workshops and gallery at their premises in the old workhouse in Abergavenny. The tour incorporates some of highlights of the journey which began with Patricia selling her handmade children’s clothes in Newport market to dressing some of the most exotic international celebrities and being involved with some very prestigious events in the world.

The exhibition emphasises key turning points in Charles and Patricia’s history so far, their innovative approach to their craft, their values and working ethos as well as the extraordinary heights they have achieved in their 50 years together.
