Crowning of the Lanimer Queen

The Crowning of the Lanimer Queen – After the Procession has travelled down the High Street for the second time. The children and other participants congregate on stands at The Cross to await the arrival of the Lanimer Queen. Once the Lanimer Queen and her Court are in position on top of the dais the Crowning Ceremony takes place. The ceremony and accompanying pageantry have remained largely unchanged since the crowning of the first Lanimer Queen in 1893.
