For the last six years, the Lytham St Annes St George’s Day Festival has been organised by dedicated volunteers and employees from Tangerine Holdings.
However 2015 will see a fresh face as a new position of festival chairman is created. Bob Gallagher, managing director of electrical installations company PEI-Delta Ltd, will be taking the reins to build on the great work already done towards making it a much anticipated five day-long celebration. A position of vice chairman has also been created and will be announced soon.
“We have been big supporters of the festival from day one. My company sponsors the black tie gala dinner each year and I am looking forward to having a larger role in the organisation of the festival and the overall events programme.”
Plans for next year are already in progress and the festival chairman hopes that a reinforced team can help attract even more visitors to Lytham and raise a record amount for the charities – making it the best St George’s Day Festival to date!
Bob shares the opinion of the festival’s founder, David Haythornthwaite, that England should be proud of its history and take advantage of the day to celebrate all things English. Bob commented: “Our neighbouring countries celebrate their national days enthusiastically. It’s unfortunate that St George’s Day is not yet as successful in England.
“I truly believe the St George’s Day Festival is one of the best ways to do this. Over the last six years it has helped put Lytham on the map and brings increased custom for local businesses and the events such as the St George’s Day lunch are excellent opportunities for networking. We have some very exciting plans for 2015 which are currently under wraps but we’re looking forward to making official announcements in due course.”
