Are you ready for ‘Yorkshire Day’? Huddersfield Town – The Yorkshire Club – has plenty ready for you on 1 August!
‘Yorkshire Day’ is celebrated on 1 August to promote the historic English county of Yorkshire was started off in 1975 by the Yorkshire Ridings Society, initially in Beverley, as a protest movement against the local government reorganisation of 1974.
The date alludes to the Battle of Minden, and also the anniversary of the emancipation of slaves in the British Empire in 1834, for which Yorkshire MP William Wilberforce had campaigned.
