Awning at Fortnum Lodge

Christmas awning for Fortnums Lodge

8 Dec 2016

Sometimes Morco do some really unusual work  and here is an example. The famous Fortnum and Mason Lodge - colloquially known just as "Fortnum's" - make a special effort at Christmas inside and out. We have installed this temporary canopy on the Somerset House, Lodge frontage to give it that something special at this time of year.

The metal frame was constructed in our Charlton Works and it is powder coated in a festive gold colour. The fabric is in an attractive turquoise which sets off the building in a striking, yet tastefully elegant, style.  

The Lodge is a relaxed, intimate place to eat and drink with friends and family. During the day, the Lodge serves Fortnum’s favourites like Welsh Rarebit and their renowned Skate Extras, including the Chocolossus Hot Chocolate, Fondue and Wine for Two, and Smoked Salmon, Caviar and Blinis.

But then, at night, a different flavour exists with the bar serving up spirits and cocktails alongside festive perennials including Champagne, Mulled Wine and an interesting tipple take on Hot Chocolate.

Somerset House is a large Neoclassical building situated on the south side of the Strand in central London, overlooking the River Thames.

It was originally a Tudor Palace but was re-designed by Sir William Chambers in 1776, and further extended with Victorian wings to the east and west in 1831 and 1856 respectively. The East Wing forms part of the adjacent Strand campus of King's College London.
