How are you celebrating Cheshire Day?
28 March 2022What will you be doing on Cheshire Day 2022? On March 30 every year, the county celebrates all things Cheshire. Cheshire Day is all about raising the profile of Cheshire, businesses, attractions, and as a place to stay, work and play.
On 30 March 1300, two days after the final reissue of the Magna Carta, King Edward I confirmed a charter of liberties for Cheshire. The charter remained in place until the 1530s when Henry VIII abolished it as part of his move to bring universal law to his kingdom.
Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council said:
“Happy Cheshire Day, the day will be marked by The Lord Mayor of Chester, Councillor Martyn Delaney and Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council, Councillor Bob Rudd raising the County flag in Chester Town Hall Square.
“Everyone can support the day by heading out to a favourite part of the county or visiting a favourite Cheshire business and talking about it online. Last year saw over 30,000 interactions take place and the hashtag #CheshireDay reached 14 million people. I’m sure we can beat that this year.”
Cheshire Day is a chance to celebrate everything Cheshire from cheese to salt, architecture to history, shopping on local high streets, visiting Cheshire attractions, dining out in Cheshire, or just experiencing Cheshire.
The Lord Mayor of Chester, Councillor Martyn Delaney and Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council, Councillor Bob Rudd will raise the County flag in Chester Town Hall Square, marking the start of the day.
