Tea Pot Parade

ENGLAND’S highest village, Flash, is to hold its traditional Tea Pot Parade on Saturday June 18.

The annual event features a re-enactment of the traditional parade of the Flash Loyal Union Society, which dates back to the 1840s.

Proceedings in the village at Quarnford, near Buxton, get underway with a table top sale outside The Knights’ Table at the Travellers Rest from 9am, in aid of Flash Village Hall.

As well as children’s entertainment, there will be a lawnmower race at 11am and a teapot service at St Paul’s Church at 2pm, followed by the blessing of the well and then a parade to the Travellers Rest pub on the A53 Leek to Buxton Road at Flash Bar.

Refreshments will be available at Flash Bar Stores, Flash Village Hall and The Knights’ Table, the latter of which will also host entertainment during the evening.

The annual Tea Pot Parade also coincides with Flash Well Dressing, which runs from Saturday June 18 to Saturday June 25, and the St Paul’s Church Flower Festival, which runs from Saturday June 18 to Tuesday June 21.
