An Evening At The Residence Of The British Ambassador To Belgium

Paul Heath and Richard Harris from Radio X were cordially invited to the British Ambassador to Belgium’s Residence in the centre of Brussels on Wednesday June 12th 2013, to a combined event – for a party in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday, plus a showcase trade event, putting smaller, select British businesses directly in touch with the mainland European market. These invited businesses aiming to emphasise what’s ‘great’ about Great Britain from a manufacturing and retailing perspective.

Around 400 guests, Belgian and British, attended the event on Rue Ducale; first being ‘greeted visually’ outside by Jaguar’s new F-Type and inside personally by the Ambassador and his team.

We talk exclusively with Prince Laurent and Princess Claire, Ambassador Mr Jonathan Brenton, a London 2012 Olympic double gold medalist, former Governor of West Flanders, some of the British businesses showcasing their products and of course many more guests on what the event meant to them.
