Queen visits Liverpool |
On Thursday, 8th April 2004, Her Majesty the Queen will hold the historic Maundy Ceremonies at Liverpool Cathedral.
Rt Revd Rupert Hoare, The Dean of Liverpool, is pleased. Rt Revd James Jones,Bishop of Liverpool, is delighted.
The Queen will be handing out traditional white purses containing coins of face value 78p to 78 women and 78 men. They will also each get a red purse, traditionally holding £5.50 for clothing and food.
All roads around the Cathedral - Upper Duke Street, Hope Street, St James Road, and quite possibly parts of Upper Parliament Street will all be closed to traffic from a very early hour to well past 1pm, so buy your flags early or you'll just be waving.
