Nidd Transport to support St. Wilfrid’s Parade for another year!

Nidd Transport are pleased to be supporting the St. Wilfrid’s Parade again this year. We will be providingvehicles to a number of local businesses for their floats. They include Lister House Care Home, Ripon Playschool, Ripon Museums and Borrage House Care Home.

The City of Ripon host this annual procession in honour of Saint Wilfrid, Ripons’ Patron Saint.

The marketplace is transformed into a space with fairground rides, Morris dancers and much more on the day. Floats will travel around the city and pass the marketplace between 2pm & 4pm, being led by an actor playing the Saint on his horse.

It all began in 1108 where King Henry 1 granted permission to the city to celebrate the birth of the Saint by holding a fair. This fair was held on the 30th July and Ripon has kept hold of the tradition to this day.

The parade will take place on the 3rd August 2019, so keep your eyes peeled for our vehicles and send us your best pictures!
