Quorn celebrates a royal wedding - 1893

Loughborough Herald - 13th July 1893

In honour of the royal wedding the village hall and grounds were secured and the Stafford Orchard placed at the disposal of the committee by Mr J S Cuffling. Tea was provided for the children of the village under 14, and a meat tea for the old people over 60. Sports were provided for them in the Stafford Orchard, Mr Henry Nicholson's band contributing much to the enjoyment of all. A grand display of fireworks wound up one of the most successful holidays ever held in Quorn.

The wedding in question was that of George, Duke of York (later George V and Princess Mary of Teck (later Queen Mary)
