A PUB celebrated multicultural Britain with its own twist on a long-forgotten tradition.
The Plowden Arms in Reading Road, Shiplake, held its second annual Empire Day on Saturday with live music, entertainment and food and drink.
Landlady Ruth Peters said: “We’re really known for all things old-fashioned and British. We were looking for an event to do that was family friendly and lively and that had a bit of history to it.”
Empire Day started in 1902, a year after Queen Victoria’s death.
The purpose was to remind children that they formed part of the British Empire and that its strength depended on them.
