The City Council’s Community Affairs Committee have given approval for a Chichester Gala procession to take place on the morning of Saturday 9th July 2016.
The City Council organised a very successful Gala Procession in 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee.
This year there is a ‘Royal’ focus but we also have events going on in outer space, so for 2016, the theme is ‘Best of British’.
Whilst floats have been a centrepiece of Gala processions of old, there were many walking groups in the 2012 Gala procession – all will be made welcome.
The City Council has a limited budget as may be expected for this event, so we are looking for sponsors and supporters – a horticultural nursery to grow the cornflowers, any contacts for marching bands, anyone who can sponsor a good supply hand waving Union Jack flags for the crowd, supply big screen televisions or even to sponsor Portaloos !!
More details to follow.
