Lancastrians everywhere are set to celebrate Lancashire Day on the 27th of this month by raising a glass at 9pm and toasting the Queen, Duke of Lancaster, to mark the date in 1295 when the countys first elected representatives were summoned by King Edward I to become Members of Parliament at Westminster.

Our photographs show last years celebrations in Nelson, Thornton and Great Eccleston, where town criers were in high demand reading out the Lancashire Day proclamation to the people of the City and County Palatine of Lancaster, including school children at Thornton Primary School.

Other events included food demonstrations, morris dancing and music and there will be similar celebrations across the county this year.
So go ahead, celebrate your heritage and raise a glass at 9pm this Lancashire Day!

We would love to see and read about what you did on Lancashire Day 2011
