The window of Coutts Strand headquarters has been adorned with a stunning depiction of the Twelve Days of Christmas in celebration of the renowned Christmas carol. The image displays a scene of a young couple dancing by a dressed Christmas tree, in front of a fireplace that is adorned with stockings and Christmas decorations.
The window highlights Coutts support for the performing arts, which extends as far back as our connections with Bram Stoker and Charles Dickens and continues as we work with some of the most renowned creatives and their businesses today.
In celebration of the Twelve Days of Christmas, the reception at Coutts Strand headquarters has been transformed into a fireplace complete with glowing fire, and the renowned banking hall will play host to a variety of performances from the Royal Opera House over the coming weeks. Coutts links with the Royal Opera House date back to the early nineteenth century when Thomas Coutts became a shareholder of the theatre and was given two silver tokens that allowed him to sit in any seat in the house. The tokens can be viewed within Coutts archive today.
To enjoy the in-house productions from the Royal Opera House’s Jazz Band and Chorus, please speak to your Coutts private banker or wealth manager.
