2018 – The report from the Knutsford Guardian with LoveGoostrey’s photos:

The hottest Goostrey Rose Festival in living memory saw 13-year-old Samantha Drucker crowned queen on Saturday 30th June 2018.

Large crowds lined Main Road to watch the procession, which was made up of floats and walking groups led by a steam traction engine driven by Terry and Des Bostock.  They pulled a special trailer carrying the gold queen Christine Derrick, nee Collinge, who was Rose Queen in 1968 and the silver queen Clare Woods, nee Leake, who was queen in 1993.  They were accompanied by James Smallwood, who was Crown Bearer 50 years ago.

Samantha, who was crowned in front of last year’s queen Abigail Burgess, was accompanied by her attendants Polly Clayton, Francesca Fairhurst, Grace Hey and Ellisse Nasry.
