Royal Throne Made From Carvery Ingredients
The Bramley Farm team in Altrincham, part of the dining and carvery brand Farmhouse Inns, has today unveiled a royal throne fit for a British queen and made from classic carvery ingredients. The throne, consisting of Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and vegetables, was commissioned by Bramley Farm General Managers Juilanne Martin and Donna Piling, as they were keen to share their passion for the upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations with their customers in true Farmhouse Inns style.
What’s more, ahead of the Jubilee in June, Farmhouse Inns Bramley Farm is temporarily rebranding to Ma’amhouse Inns until the celebrations are over, with a brand-new royal banner added to the exterior of the pub.
The carvery throne was created by renowned food artist Nathan Wyburn, who uses a range of non-traditional items such as household goods and foodstuffs to create stunning works of art, such as a portrait of HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall back in 2018. Now, the unique carvery throne forms the first of many Jubilee themed celebrations for Farmhouse Inns, which is known for its outstanding carvery and cake offering, as sites across the UK will be decorated for the four-day bank holiday weekend.

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham is honouring the Queen’s remarkable 70 years on the throne by throwing the world’s smallest Platinum Jubilee celebration. After taking to the throne in 1952, Her Majesty has ‘built’ an extraordinary legacy, serving not only the UK but the masses of countries throughout the Commonwealth. As such, the residents of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre have decided to mark her Platinum Jubilee with a party like no other.
Taking to the streets of MINILAND Birmingham, a mini figure of Queen Elizabeth II can be spotted waving with the rest of her royal family from the balcony, as her Jubilee carriage and mini figures parade the streets in her honour.
With foot guards marching, 350 patriots waving the nation’s flag, streets lined with bunting, reporters on hand and secret service officers watching nearby, it’s an image we’re sure to see replicated in real life throughout the Platinum Pageant and Trooping of the Colour during the extended Bank Holiday weekend. LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham’s MINILAND features many of the city’s iconic buildings, from the Bullring to the world’s smallest Primark and now for the first time has its very own regal procession.

Dr. Beckmann renames product to Dr. Beckma’am.
In a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne, cleaning and laundry expert, Dr. Beckmann, has renamed its Pet Stain and Odour Remover – the UK’s number one – to Dr. Beckma’am. The limited-edition pack has had a royal make-over, complete with the UK flags, its new honouree title and the inclusion of corgis – the Queen’s loveable pets. Whilst her pooches may be royalty, with the long walks at Sandringham and Balmoral, there is no doubt their mucky paws cause some damage throughout the palace.
So, for a limited time only, Dr. Beckmann’s Pet Stain and Odour Remover has been rebranded to honour Her Majesty and her special companions. As the best-selling product for removing the messes our four-legged friends may create, it seems fitting that the Queen’s loyal companions would feature on a special Dr. Beckma’am Jubilee pack. The highly effective formula of Dr. Beckmann’s Pet Stain and Odour Remover helps remove stains and odours from carpets and upholstery caused by our pets, with the help of its unique 2 in 1 brush applicator.
The product is available at a wide range of retailers and is currently on offer at Waitrose for two for £6.50*. Anyone who orders a Pet Stain and Odour Remover via the Dr. Beckmann website over the Jubilee celebrations, could be in with a chance of receiving the special Jubilee edition*: https://www.dr-beckmann.co.uk/products/pet-stain-and-odour-remover/
