Rose Queen Carnival 2011 – a jolly good show

Whaley Bridge’s Rose Queen Festival put on a good show – as they always do – for 2011. They even managed to dodge most of the showers, although the drizzle set in  late in the day.

Whaley Bridge Royalty 2011

The traditional mix – with some modern twists – pleased the crowd.  The ‘royalty’ and the visiting  courts were charming, as ever.  Whaley Bridge primary school got its centenary celebrations going early.  Their parade entry was a vintage Rolls Royce, with a Mary Poppins theme – and won a first prize.
