St Georges Day Parade takes place in Liverpool

Yesterday, on our National Saints Day, St George a parade was held and marched through the city.

The march organised by the Loyal Orange Institution of England and Liverpool Provincial Grand Lodge.

Various lodges and bands took part in the parade, to celebrate our National Saints Day.

It included members parading being accompanied by traditional Orange bands playing a variety of different instruments.

The parade moved off at 3pm from various points across the city including Netherfield Road, Dingle and Garston.

The parade made its way into the City Centre, saluting the Cenotaph at St George’s Hall to remember the fallen.

Then continuing to the Anglican Cathedral, for a family Service of Worship and evensong.

The service was conducted by the Vice Dean of the Cathedral.

The service included a band providing a musical interlude inside the Cathedral, playing traditional Patriotic music, to Celebrate St Georges Day.

The Great George Bell was rung on the day of celebration.

There was several hundred people on the parade to mark St George’s Day.

Many St George’s flags and flags of the United Kingdom were flown on the parade as a sign of our patriotism towards the National Saint.

The Orange Institution is proud of its heritage and looks forward to celebrating England’s National Saints day each year.
