£10 in the draw! Check our website today to see if its your lucky day! It was a lucky day in 1749 when the first performance of George Frideric Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks in Green Park, London took place and a lucky day in 1992, when Betty Boothroyd became the first woman to be elected Speaker of the British House of Commons in its 700-year history.

Famous people born on this day include Cecil Day-Lewis, Anglo-Irish poet and author, born 1904, Russell T Davies, Welsh screenwriter and producer born 1963 and Darcey Bussell, English ballerina, born 1969, to whom the day is dedicated to:

Wishing you a lovely day!
