BUSINESSES ACROSS THE COUNTY CELEBRATED THE FIRST LANCASHIRE BUSINESS DAY AT A PRESTIGIOUS DINNER EVENT.
On 27 November, AG attended the new date in the county’s commercial calendar to celebrate the red rose county’s graft, skill, determination and success.
Lancashire Day celebrates and commemorates the occasion in 1295 when the county first sent representatives to participate in the model parliament of Edward I. It is traditionally observed with a toast to the Queen, Duke of Lancaster.
Maria Moriarty Eames of Marketing Lancashire said: “As champions of Lancashire as a place to work, live, invest and visit, Marketing Lancashire is pleased to be part of this new opportunity to celebrate Lancashire Day with the many fantastic businesses which help to make Lancashire a thriving and growing economy.
“Marketing Lancashire has led an annual campaign to get Lancashire Day trending on social media and has raised the profile of Lancashire Day across the globe with #LancashireDay seeing a potential reach of over 60 million people in 2016 and connecting with people in 924 locations across the world.
This new event offers businesses of all kinds the chance to join in a day that proudly celebrates all things Lancashire and supports our campaign, ‘We Are Lancashire’.”
