Blackburn Market is getting behind this year’s St. George’s Day celebrations in the town by sponsoring the red roses that the local Royal Society of St. George hand out to shoppers and visitors.
The society will be celebrating the patron saint of England on Thursday 23 April and Saturday 25 April around the town centre, with Saturday featuring music, dance and fun fair rides for children. The society also host an annual stall dressing competition in the market when traders on Blackburn Market are encouraged to dress their stall up for St. George’s Day to compete for a winner’s trophy.
Michael Pilkington, Deputy Chairman of the Blackburn Royal Society of St. George, said
