We have entertainment organised all day:
- The City of Preston Pipes and Drums will kick off proceedings at 11 am, followed by Preston Concert Band.
- We hope you will enter into the spirit of the day by dressing as they would have in the 1950s… At 11.45 am we will parade the costumes and pick the prize winners!
- Stroll along the stalls, including a tombola from the school, sideshows from the Scouts, books from Usborne, plants from Ribblesdale Nurseries. Sample local produce or do a craft activity with the Guides, by their hut on the field. Join in the fun outside Kipp-McGrath’s.
- Then, at 12-midday, it's over to the young people from Broughton High School with dance and music.
- In Toll Bar Cottage will be displayed jubilee-themed Iced cakes, in a competition being organised by Broughton WI & sponsored by the Foot Room.
- Just after 1 pm, we will relax and sit down to eat lunch (and to the Queen’s 70-year reign!), soothed by the sounds of Preston Concert Band.
- Our own Café in the Toll Bar Cottage will be supplying lunch boxes for children, plus drinks and snacks, courtesy of Broughton Parish Council and the National Lottery.
- At 2 pm, after lunch, relax in the Cottage Garden whilst listening to the Broughton Hand Bell ringers, then watch the children parade in “crowns” they made for the jubilee. We finish on the street with the prize giving at 3 pm.
BUT, the day continues... as we move to the concert hall at Broughton Club from 6 pm, for an evening with Miss Soulful - Entry is free of charge.
Help us capture and re-live the fun by photographing the day and entering your best images into the Jubilee Photo Competition…twelve of the pictures will feature in the 1st Broughton Village Calendar, to be sold this coming Autumn with profits, alongside any made on the day, going to the Sue Ryder Neurological Centre which is based in the southern part of our parish.
