Longridge Field Day 2011 Programme

Update: I've now posted some pictures of Longridge Field Day 2011.


This is a quick plug for Longridge Field Day - it seems to come around quicker each year!  Longridge Field Day 2011 will be held on Saturday 11 June, with the main events running from noon until 6pm, and the Fun Fair continuing until 9pm. It was great fun and well run (and policed) last year, so wasn't marred by the drunken rioting which has occasionally taken the shine off previous events. Hopefully it will be just as family-friendly this time.

Here's the running order, lifted straight from the official Longridge Field Day programme:

10:30 Judging of Decorated Houses/Shops by the Mayor
12:00 Parade assembles at Civic Hall
12:30 Parade moves off led by Vintage/Classic Cars and Bikes
 3:30 Punch and Judy
