Downham Market prepares for St Winnold’s Parade

Downham Market is preparing for the annual St Winnold’s Parade, due to take place on Friday 15th March 2013.

Bernard the Shire Horse at the St Winnold's ParadeBernard the Shire Horse, will leave his home at Church Farm, in Stow Bardolph, to lead the parade through the streets of Downham, along with a medieval musician.

The procession will start from Downham Market Town Council offices at 9.00am and work its way through the Hollies car park where local primary schools will be gathered with a horse-related art piece which they have made.

Visiting dignitaries from several counties will then process on to the Town Hall where the Town Crier will proclaim our historic Charter followed by a prayer and blessing for our markets and town.
