Centenary Celebration Day

On Wednesday 19th June, we marked our centenary with a fantastic day of celebrations across all Sanderson Design Group sites. 

At Standfast and Barracks we welcomed a wonderful group of guests including the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire, Amanda Parker, the Deputy Mayor of Lancaster, Hamish Mills, and valued customers, as well as members of the press.

Highlights of the day included an insightful factory tour, the unveiling of our newly restored Grade II listed clock tower and commemorative plaque, as well as being presented with the belated 2020 Queen's Award for Enterprise: International Trade by the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to making this milestone celebration truly unforgettable.

We received some wonderful press coverage from the event. Listen to Debbie McKeegan, CEO of Textintel, interview our CEO Lisa Montague 'Celebrating Textile Excellence -100 Years in Print with Standfast & Barracks' .

You can also read about us in Beyond Radio's article 'Lancaster Fabric Firm Celebrates 100 years as Iconic Clock Ticks Again'. You can hear interviews with Lisa Montague, Emma Douglas our Creative and Commercial Director, as well as Peter Elliston, who has worked here at S&B for over 50 years!

Walpole, the official sector body for UK luxury, wrote a wonderful piece 'Celebrating 100 years of craft with Standfast & Barracks of Sanderson Design Group' which highlights our Artist in Residence Margo Selby, as well as how we resiliently brought the business back to life from the devastating flood of 2015.

Don't miss our article in the Lancaster Guardian too, showing behind-the-scenes photos of the day!
