With 'Freedom Day' just over three weeks away, we can finally start looking forward to all the exciting events planned for Lancashire this summer

Due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 and ongoing lockdown restrictions, some events have already been cancelled or rescheduled for next year.

But many events have confirmed they are still going ahead, with open-air gigs, music and art festivals, street carnivals, craft fairs and many other shows and attractions ready to keep us entertained this summer.

Still going ahead...
