The reason is that the Festival will coincide with American Vehicle weekend at the Vehicle Museum.

If the weather is like this in a couple of weeks it will be a great festival.

I used to enjoy getting ratted on Lion Bitter in plastic glasses in the beer tent - not the same without Matthew Brown

Hi Audrey - so we are having another Festival. Most of mine are pre-war.
Now they were Festivals - Butcher as the great British Gentleman - the Festival Queen on the decorated cart pulled by Cannings Horses in their immaculate harnesses. Then there were the Ten Little ...... Boys - Morris Dancers - the float in memory of the First War - and many things keep coming to mind. What about the Bands? Remember Leyland Motors Band leadind Morris Dancing.

Yes, I remember it all, we may have posters who can add their memories, even to the celebrations on The May Field.

Enough! enough! I can hear the cry from our members of today. Lets just end by saying you didn`t know what you have missed - when Leyland really was Leyland. William R

Hi William, It`s good to see you in print again TongueTongue

`What about the Bands?` you say. What indeed. If my memory doesn`t fail me I think there were never fewer than ten in the parade. Coconut dancers from Colne, the jazz band led by the colored gentleman twirling his umbrella and not forgetting our local ones including Leyland, Croston and Brindle.

Not long to go now until festival day. I don't know what the weather is like up north but it's a bit grim down here, even though the forecast was 23C.
