After a two year absence due to the covid pandemic, The Yorkshire Society’s civic celebration of Yorkshire Day will return this year, hosted by Keighley Town Council.

Preparations are well under way for Yorkshire Day’s centre piece which will be complemented by a number of other public activities and events around the town during the weekend before and Yorkshire day itsef, Monday, 1st August.


Those fortunate enough to be invited, will enjoy a delicious breakfast on a special steam train journey by Keighley & Worth Valley Railway to Keighley Station, from where the flags and the public will be out to see the traditional parade of Yorkshire’s Lord Mayors, Mayors, VIPs and members of The Yorkshire Society to Keighley Shared Church, where a thanksgiving service will be held. Transport will be provided to take everyone from the church to Riddlesden Hall, a stunning National Trust property, for the formal civic lunch, speeches and appropriate entertainment.

The official Yorkshire Day Civic Celebration is one of the flagship events in the Society’s calendar and members only enjoy the priviledge of being invited and taking part in this piece of Yorkshire pomp and circumstance.

This year’s event is shaping up to be a very special one as its significance, and the importance of Yorkshire Day itself, becomes more noticable.
