Happy Lancashire Day – Tuesday 27th November.
On this day in 1295 the first elected representatives from Lancashire were called to Westminster by King Edward I to attend what later became known as “The Model Parliament”.
The Lancashire Day proclamation will be read out by the Town Crier at 11am at the War Memorial Gardens where the Lancashire Flag will be flying. This will be followed by drinks and cake at the Royal Station Hotel. Come along and take this opportunity to declare that we are proud to be Lancastrians! #lancashireday
To the people of the city and county palatine of Lancaster, Greetings!
Know ye that this day, November 27th in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Eighteen, the 67th year of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,
Duke of Lancaster, is Lancashire Day.
Know ye also, and rejoice, that by virtue of Her Majesty’s County Palatine of Lancaster, the citizens of the Hundreds of Lonsdale, North and South of the Sands, Amounderness, Leyland, Blackburn, Salford and West Derby are forever
entitled to style themselves Lancastrians.
Throughout the County Palatine, from the Furness Fells to the River Mersey, from the Irish Sea to the Pennines, this day shall ever mark the peoples’ pleasure in that excellent distinction – true Lancastrians, proud of the Red Rose and loyal to our Sovereign Duke.
GOD BLESS LANCASHIRE AND GOD SAVE THE QUEEN, DUKE OF LANCASTER.
