Lancashire Week 20 to 27 November

Lancashire Day is held on 27 November. It commemorates the day in 1295 when Lancashire sent its first representatives to Parliament. I have recently been involved in controversy in the local press by writing that Lancashire has been in Merseyside since 1974. I don't intend to repeat the debate here, just to point out that there are a number of events to celebrate our Lancashire heritage. I was born in Liverpool, Lancs, and despite my notoriety among the Friends of Real Lancashire, I intend to join in.
