Eleven year old Tallulah Birchall is the queen elect for Scorton Bikes and Barrows Festival 2018

The year six pupil at Scorton Primary School who is keen gymnast with Garstang School of Gymnastics and also a member at the Garstang School of Dance will take centre stage at the annual event which runs from May 5 -7.

She will be attended during this year's parade on Saturday May 5 by her retinue including Erin Bailie, Hazel Haworth, Lewis Huntingdon, Isabel Harwood, Florence Cray and Isobel Pollitt.

Tallula, who last month competed as part of the Lancashire gymnastics team at the North West Grades Finals in Wigan, said: "I would like to be a good role model for any young girls to show that you can enjoy dressing up for occasions but still be sporty, scientific or anything else that you want to be.

Tallulah was previously part of the retinue for former Rose Queen Abby Hesketh in 2014.
