30 Talks To Celebrate 30 Years In Lichfield


Arthur Price has been at the forefront of cutlery and giftware design and manufacturing for 110 years and since 1982 has been based in Lichfield.   To celebrate 30 years in the city the world-renowned firm will be holding a series of events and activities throughout 2012..

Arthur Price was the first company to locate to the Britannia Industrial Estate, named by current CEO Simon's father in April 1982 and to start the celebrations they want to offer 30 local organisations the chance to find out more about cutlery via a series of talks by CEO Simon Price.  Simon has, for many years, staged informal presentations to regional voluntary and social groups including Round Table, Probus and various church organisations.  They have proved to be a great success and topics have included the history of Arthur Price, We Love Lichfield and in 2012, Simon is able, on the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic to talk about Arthur Price supplying the ill-fated luxury liner's first class restaurants.   The presentations are free and refreshments are provided. 

All you have to do is call Bev Shepherd on 01543 409810 and book a date and time.
Simon Price, Chief Executive of Arthur Price said:  'I remember my father moving the company to Lichfield and Arthur Price becoming the first firm on the Britannia Industrial Estate.  2012 is going to be a great year for the UK with the Queen's Jubilee and the Olympics and Arthur Price is going to have its own small celebration.  As an ex-Sheriff of the city and patron of the We Love Lichfield fund I have a great passion for Lichfield and I want to spend some of my time this year chatting about my passion cutlery, with some of its citizens.'
