Procession competitions

This year's Town Procession is

We want to build a celebration of everything that represents the Queen's Coronation and the world around it:
the fifties,  the countries the Queen represented, the songs of the time, the writers, the Kings and Queens that went before,  the street parties, even the chefs who prepared her coronation dinner!
As well as celebrating the Platinum Jubilee, we will be welcoming walking and dancing groups to represent our town and its fabulous community.

Anyone can join in and if you dress up in the theme of the procession you can win a prize and rosette. Entries are judged from 09.30am so make sure you leave plenty of time. To find out more look at the Town Procession page on this website and the exciting prizes on offer!
