Children who dream of being a princess could see those dreams come true at this year’s Lions Gala in March.
Today we’re launching our competition to find the next gala princess and attendant.
As guest of honour the winner will receive VIP treatment at the annual celebration on June 7 as well as leading the festival’s highlight, the Gala Parade.
The lucky youngster will also receive £50 from the Citizen and the attendant £25.
Ian Groome, from March Lions, said: “She will lead the parade through the town, then she will open the event with the president of March Lions.
“There will be plenty of amusements and stalls to enjoy and we will provide something to eat.They are royalty for the day after all.”
The celebration is part of a three-day summer festival taking place from June 6 to 8.
Between three and five thousand visitors are expected each day.
Ian said: “There will be loads of charity stalls raising money, because that’s where it all started from really.
“While this is going on the summer festival will have entertainment on stage, plenty of dancing and live music. There’s something for everyone.”
The princess and attendant will be escorted by two people at all times.
All aspiring princesses must be between seven and 16.
