Celebrate Lancashire Day!

Enjoy all things Lancashire at Lancaster City Council’s Visitor Information Centres, when both centres have their own celebrations of this special day.

This year’s Lancashire Day (27th November) falls on a Friday and the award winning Visitor Information Centres in Morecambe and Lancaster are inviting people to pop along and pick up lots of information about the county all week from Friday 20th November.

Lancashire Day recalls the occasion on November 27 1295 when elected representatives from Lancashire were called to Westminster by King Edward I to attend what later became known as “The Model Parliament.” True Lancastrians are asked to raise their glasses and drink the Loyal Toast to “The Queen, Duke of Lancaster”.

Both centres will be having a free prize draw to win a Lancashire goodie bag – pop along during the week to enter.

Books, tea, badges, fridge magnets, tea towels and china mugs – all with a Lancashire theme - are just a few gift ideas available from the information centres – ideal Christmas presents!
