Historical facts

In 1892 the first Lanimer Procession was held. The following year saw the first Lanimer Queen crowned. Lanimer day has now grown to be one of the largest processions of its type in the United Kingdom and is renowned for its scale, energy and entertainment value. Traditionally held on the ‘Thursday that lies between the 6th and 12th days of June’ Lanimer day is a magical day. Over 1,000 participants, young and old, take part in our wonderful procession accompanied by spectacular ‘Lanimer Lorries’ and a soundtrack of Pipe, Silver and contemporary marching bands. It is truly a magnificent event and great fun for all the family, with entertainment throughout the day.
