What is #StaffordshireDay?

07/07/2015

WHAT'S STAFFORDSHIRE DAY?

#StaffordshireDay is our chance to celebrate what's great about our county, and tell the world why they need to come here!

Let's shout about our stunning scenery, our thrilling theme parks, our history and heritage!

#StaffordshireDay will be our chance to say all this and much more!

SO, WHY NOW?

In 2016, Staffordshire will be 1000 years old!

The county was first mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, described on Wikipedia as 'a collection of annals in Old English chronicling the history of the Anglo-Saxons', in 1016.

What better time to celebrate than on our 1000th birthday?!

HELP US CHOOSE THE DATE!

We don't have a specific date of the first mention, as the Anglo-Saxons didn't record them back then.

So we need to choose one for our first birthday party!

We have put together five important dates in Staffordshire's history - dates which made an impact here and around the world.

And now we want you to decide which one should be #StaffordshireDay.
