Students have Royal work published to commemorate Queen's Coronation

Two WAES graphic design students see their designs turn to reality this month as the Royal Palaces produce 30,000 copies of their booklets to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation at Westminster Abbey.


As part of their course project BTEC Diploma Level 3 students were asked to design and produce a 24-page booklet to tell the background story of the Coronation, integrating photography and creative writing community projects.

Students worked on a range of designs for the project, which brought together the historic Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and Edinburgh Castle venues with community organisations including Westminster Adult Education Service.


Booklet designs by Anna Wieclaw and Richard Lee (pictured, top) were chosen for publication, and are now available to summer visitors of these popular and world-famous attractions.

Students of the BTEC Diploma in Photography Level 3 at WAES responded to a related project brief, Picture the procession, investigating the ‘traditional’ Coronation route from the Tower of London to Westminster Abbey.

As well as having their work featured in the Coronation booklets, a number of images - which capture the landmarks in different light and moods - were selected for a month long exhibition in St. Margaret’s Church, known as the parish church of the House of Commons, next door to Westminster Abbey until mid-July.
