Whitsuntide Festival 2009

Date: 30/05/09   Duration: 9.37 Minutes
Ribble Valley - Goosnargh

at Goosnargh and whittingham

The Goosnargh & Whittingham Whitsuntide Festival was again blessed with beautiful weather, as locals and visitors alike came to join in the celebrations.

Whitsuntide festival dates back hundreds of years, and still has all of its traditional English entertainment such as May Pole dancing which was skillfully performed by the local school children,

The festival also included brass bands, dancers, entertainers and a full Scottish pipe band who it was rumoured took a wrong turn at Glasgow.

The huge raffle went down a storm and in true country spirit everyone got involved with clearing up. If there is one thing for certain about this historic event, it’s that it will be back again next year.
