Veterans Day - Centenary Square

The weather was warm and sunny for the Veterans Day service and open-air tea dance which took place today in Centenary Square, Bradford.

The day started with a centuries old Drumhead Service.  Traditionally soldiers in the field would make an altar by placing their standards on neatly laid drums.

The afternoon continued with a real party atmosphere.  There was jive dancing with the incredible 'Jiving Lindy Hoppers' backed by the equally impressive 'Swing Shifters' band.
