Lancashire Day (first held in 1996) is on 27 November each year to commemorate the day in 1295 when Lancashire first sent representatives to Parliament, to attend the Model Parliament of King Edward I.
The Lancashire Day proclamation is read out by town criers throughout the county on 27th November:
To the people of the city and county palatine of Lancaster
Know ye that this day, November 27th in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and twenty, the 69th year of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Duke of Lancaster, is
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 people’s 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.
