About Poulton Gala – Saturday 1 June 2019
The whole event focuses on the town centre, with the historic landmark St. Chad’s parish church as an impressive backdrop.
The theme for Poulton Gala 2019 is ‘Circus’!
The parade will be the pinnacle of a day packed with family entertainment, kicking off at 10am and running through to 5pm in Market Place.
The parade will set-up and leave from the town’s Civic Centre car park and follow a newly-extended figure-of-eight route. It takes in all of the main shopping streets before finishing in Market Place. There, the new Gala Queen will be crowned by the retiring Gala Queen.
Music, dance displays and stalls in Market Place will feature, with some additional surprises in store for people who attend.
A bit of rain doesn’t stop the Poulton Gala Parade from taking place. Please make sure that you’re prepared with waterproofs and umbrellas just in case! If it is raining, the crowning of the Gala Queen Elect will take place inside St Chads church at approx 1pm.

More About Poulton Gala
Held on the first weekend of June each year, Poulton Gala is an event for all the town with a wide range of entertainments.
The Poulton Gala Committee joined Poulton Partnership in 2011 to bring the Gala to town on Saturday and a Classic Vehicle event on the Sunday. They succeeded with their intention to create an event to remember in 2011.
This event is all about attracting people to Poulton, and bringing visitors to the town centre, so they can see what a lovely place Poulton is. It’s also all about celebrating community spirit and showing off all the many wonderful groups and organisations which make up the fabric of local life.
Poulton Gala is organised by a team of volunteers which aim to create a super family day out for everyone.
More people are always needed to work on the administration, licenses, permissions and health and safety, others to work with exhibitors and attendees.
No matter how much time you have to give, there’s something to do for everyone and your skills would always be welcome. So if you would like to help with events like this just get in touch. Your contribution would be very much valued!
