Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council said: "The Picnic in the Park is a great event for all the family and year after year it's so great to see so many people head to Astley Park for a lovely afternoon out.

"While we cannot guarantee to coax the sun out from behind the clouds, we promise to bring the entertainment for all the family to enjoy.

"This bank holiday weekend, choose Chorley.

"We've not just got brilliant events; we have a thriving and bustling town centre with loads of things to see and do.”

Visitors to the event can also expect funfair rides, a bouncy castle, a soft play centre, a climbing wall and an array of local food and drink sample.

While a whole range of activities will be free of charge, there may be a small fee for some attractions such as funfair rides, bouncy castles, and face painting.
