yorkshire day

Yorkshire Day, celebrated on the 1st August, is a day to remember and celebrate, the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire. Originating as a military holiday, its roots stem from a few things, including the emancipation of slaves in 1834, a few military customs and some protests about losing the cultural identity.

How do people celebrate Yorkshire day?

Yorkshire Fish n Chips, Yorkshire Pudding, York Minster, and Tea!

A large percentage of the population celebrate this day in a way similar to many other celebrations; it started small and now has a minor culture behind the celebration of the Day.

The celebration is central to the belief and custom of maintaining a locale’s traditions and culture during a time of upheaval. A celebration started with just a reading, now encompasses anything to do with Yorkshire, from cooking and confectionery delights to history and military customs.

We will be celebrating in the Caremark Rotherham & Sheffield Office by having an Afternoon Tea style lunch! Scones, Cakes, Cups of Tea and anything else we can think of to celebrate our lovely County! Why not come and join us for a scone and a Cuppa?
