This photo from 1981 was brought in by David Lancaster and shows members of Clitheroe and District Chamber of Trade putting up the bunting in Clitheroe’s Castle Street, just outside the Rose and Crown pub.

The bunting was to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, which took place on Wednesday, July 29th, 1981, at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Their marriage was widely billed as a “fairytale wedding” and the “wedding of the century”.

It was watched by an estimated global television audience of 750 million. The United Kingdom had a national holiday on that day to mark the royal wedding.

The couple separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996.
