Happy Yorkshire Day to You!!

This year’s official Yorkshire Day (1st August) celebrations were due to be taking place in Rotherham, but due to coronavirus, a virtual event will be taking place online instead. The event will be streamed online and will feature a variety of entertainment including local poets and storytellers.

You can watch it on the facebook page (it’s a public page so you should still be able to see it if you don’t have a facebook account) https://www.facebook.com/RMBCEvents/

Or if you feel like marking the day with a bit of traditional Yorkshire Parkin – Leeds Cookery School have shared their special parkin recipe for the day (we know it’s meant to be cooked on bonfire night but it looks good anyway)  https://www.leedscookeryschool.org.uk/yorkshire-day-recipe/
