Barrow has never been big on celebrating
day unlike our neighbours in nearby Ulverston who had a St Georges festival on Sunday. But Ulverston likes to be known as the festival town, and so they don't need too much of an excuse for any form of festival. This year’s events include a Flag, Dickensian, Beer, Charter, International Music, Folklore, Comedy, Walking, Buddhist, Print, Fashion, Soot juggling and the Furness Festival of Tradition. St George’s
OK so I lied about the soot juggling, but wouldn't be surprised to see it in the list next year.
I was taken by surprise to actually see
day greetings cards on sale in Barrow town centre this week, perhaps we’re slowly warming to the idea. Heck we’ll be having festivals next eh! St George’s
