Set up your own Blue Honour Line

The Blue Honour Line was introduced in 1958 and marks the spot along the route for people to sit and stand to watch the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant. It was named the Blue Honour Line to encourage everyone to honour and respect the Pageant, for the safety of everyone attending. This year we want you to set up your own Blue Honour Line at home just like Pageant Day!
