In a boost to heroic Brexiteers worldwide, Yorkshire has announced that Leeds will be hosting the first ever Yorkshire Pudding festival on the first of February 2020! The festival will coincide with the 500th anniversary of the invention of the Yorkshire pudding, and, of course, one day after Britain wrenches itself bloodily out of the EU.

With the festival being held on such an important date, Brexiteers are sure to flock to the sleepy Yorkshire town in their millions, giving the local economy a welcome boost after it is decimated by Brexit.

Carl Duggerby, 56, of Woldshire on the Wolds said:

"It’s a great time to be celebrating a great British dish like the Yorkshire pudding! If there’s one thing proud Brits don’t book to, it’s lefty PC nonsense about their Yorkshire puddings. This will be a celebration of all things Yorkshire pudding, and, after Brexit, the changing of the guard at the Palace, and fishing rights, this will fast become my favourite thing."

Fans of the famous pudding will be able to select from a wide range of puds including “sweet” and “spicy” ones, as well as “traditional”. Security will be tight at the event, as several disgruntled Aunt Bessies employees have branded the event “a serious waste of time”.

Gladys Danlock, 98, of Wolds on the Woldshire, said:

"I’m 98, and I’ve eaten over 30million Yorkshire puddings in my lifetime. Even during rationing, I ate Yorkshire pudding five times a day, nine days a week. We had more days back then. If it was up to Corbyn, I would have to give up my Yorkshire puddings and let a Tunisian man sleep in my bed. World's gone mad."
