Tour De Yorkshire – Sunday 30 April

The Tour De Yorkshire comes to Queensbury on Sunday 30 April and the Black Dyke Mills will become a designated spectator hub for the day. A big screen will be streaming the race live from its midday start in Bradford through to the finish in Sheffield. The main peloton is expected to speed through Queensbury at around 2.15.

A full day of activities is planned. The ever popular Makers Market (along with a cafe) will be open from 1000 in the Black Dyke Mills Heritage Venue. There will be food stalls in the mill yard selling cakes, sandwiches, burgers and ice cream (and possibly more). Alongside will be a BMX track and the opportunity to participate in Virtual Reality games.

Music will come from a number of local bands and the world famous Black Dyke Band will be playing just before and after the peloton passes.

To round off the day there is an evening concert in the Black Dyke Mills Heritage Venue featuring local legends Scarlet Heights. The concert will also include performances from local choirs. The evening concert will start at 6.30 pm and admission is £3.00.

A great day is in prospect. Come along and celebrate a special day for Queensbury.
