Loyal toast...the Queen, Duke of Lancaster!

Lancashire Day allows us the opportunity to declare that we are proud to be Lancastrians.

The Lancashire Day proclamation will be read out by town criers throughout the county on 27th November. 

Lancashire Day commemorates the day in 1295 when Lancashire sent its first representatives to Parliament by King Edward I of England to attend what later became known as The Model Parliament.

How very cool! I didn't know any of that. Except that the Queen is the Duke of Lancaster - for some odd reason I DID know that!
