A feast of live music will be on offer this weekend as part of an event celebrating the recently installed bandstand in Padiham.
Taking place on 9th July at Padiham Memorial Park, the free event will see many talented artists and dancers whisking local residents and visitors into the festive spirit.
The celebration will start at 1pm with a parade from the town hall to Memorial Park, weaving through the Padiham Greenway.
The parade will be led by a vibrant samba band which will ensure energetic and upbeat start to the main event.
From 1.30pm a number of musical acts will perform including Odall Acoustic Duo, Burnley-born Lucy Zirins, and Chantel McGregor.
The Manchester School of Samba will bring a carnival atmosphere with eye-catching dance and costumes.
Fun for young ones will also be available as well as food from local traders.
Residents and visitors are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnics for a great afternoon out with the whole family.
Councillor John Harbour, Burnley Council’s executive member responsible for culture and leisure, said: “The event will celebrate the opening of the recently installed bandstand in Padiham.
“There's a wide variety of music acts performing so there's guaranteed to be something for everyone."
The event is being organised by Burnley Council’s greenspaces team, which is asking people not to bring any glass containers.
Dogs are welcome at the event, but owners are asked not to take their four-legged friends near the bandstand during the event.
