THIS year’s festival coincides with the 65th anniversary of VE Day, so a 40s Evening will be held next Friday night at Golcar Liberal Club at 8pm.
This theme will continue on Golcar Lily Day with plenty of people dressed up to add to the atmosphere.
The event will be officially opened by Mary Sykes, a former midwife from Golcar, wearing her 1940’s uniform.
On the Sunday (May 9 at 10.45am) everyone is welcome to the Golcar Lily Service at Parkwood Methodist Church featuring Vintage Brass, with tea, coffee and biscuits afterwards.
The revived Golcar Sing takes place on the Sunday at Manor Road School playing fields (or Golcar Providence Methodist Church is it’s raining) at 2.45pm. Favourite hymns and bits of the Messiah will be sung, accompanied by Huddersfield Wind Band. The speaker will be Margaret Ramsbottom, who was formerly the Golcar postmistress.
Visitors can park at one of the outlying churches where a bus will run them into the village centre. A full programme of events can be bought at most of the local shops, library and Colne Valley Museum, or visit the website: www.golcarlilyday.co.uk
