Reggae star to be toast of town’s Live weekend
A rising star of Jamaican reggae is among the latest artists to confirm dates for the Chorley Live event next month.
Jamaican Troydon Bent will headline at a venue yet to be confirmed, and Matthew Cogley and Pummerla Anderson will also headline on Friday and Saturday, October 3 and 4.
Chorley Live will see 200 live performances take place in 25 venues across the town centre.
This year there will also be an outdoor stage on Fazakerley Street during the day.
Chorley Council is teaming up with the Creative Network to put on the entertainment extravaganza and they say there will be something for all the family and every taste of music.
There will be a wide variety of performers including rock, metal, soul, pop, country, jazz, blues, folk, Americana, hip hop, dance groups, choirs, classical music, magicians, storytellers and much, much more.
People can gain entry to the venues using a wristband that will cost £5 (free for under 12s), allowing them to choose from all the performances.
There will be live performances at 7pm, 8pm, 9pm and 10pm at each venue. There will also be a daytime stage on Fazakerley Street with performances from 1pm to 8pm each day.
Wristbands will be on sale at each venue.
