Why Lancashire Day?

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 is read out by town criers throughout the county on 27th November.
The Church of St Mary Magdalene’s will be celebrating Lancashire Day on the 27th November 2010, in the Church Hall.

There will be a hot-pot lunch, concert and quiz. The day will also see the proclamation of the loyal toast, to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Duke of Lancaster.

We also have Optimun TV, production company filming with us for a BBC2 regional food programme, which will be broadcasted in March 2011.

Lisa Allen, Head Chef at Northcote Manor, Blackburn, will also be on hand to cook up traditional Lancashire farye in addition to our own Anne Croft’s Traditional Lancashire Hot Pot.
