Lancashire Week ~ 24 to 27 November

As someone who was born in Liverpool, then in Lancashire, I regard the Lancashire Week celebrations as a bit of fun and nothing more: the boundaries were changed 35 years ago and they won't change back. That shouldn't stop anyone joining in, although dressing up is not my thing.  Besides, I'm doubtful of the stereotypes of Lancashire dress, but so what? It's not an historical reconstruction. Take your pick from the following Lancashire celebrations:
  • Tuesday, 24 November, Lancashire “Neet” with The Southport Swords at The Guest House, Southport.
  • Tuesday, 24 November, Lancashire Quiz Night at The Robin Hood, Mawdesley.
  • Thursday, 26 November, Lancashire Beers and Quiz at The Scarisbrick Hotel (Baron’s Bar), Southport.
  • Friday, 27 November, Lancashire “Neet” at The Volunteer Arms, Southport (Community Pub of The Year).
  • Friday, 27 November, Lancashire “Neet” at The Hop Vine, Burscough.
  • Friday, 27 November, Lancashire “Neet” at The Ship Inn, Lathom, Burscough.
  • Friday, 27 November, Lancashire “Neet” at The Stocks Tavern, Parbold.
  • Friday, 27 November, Lancashire “Neet” at The Robin Hood, Mawdesley. (All Lancashire Cask Ales at £2 per pint).
I'm told all pubs will be serving traditional Lancashire beer and Lancashire food, and there will be a prize for The Best Dressed Lancastrian:
  • Men: flat cap, belt, braces, waistcoat, clogs.
  • Women: mop hat, flat cap, clogs, shawl, pinny or pendle witch.
We'll then all look like extras from "Brass"!
