But as lockdown eases there's finally light at the end of the tunnel, so you can get set to go to some (or all) of these planned events this year.
1. Royal Lancashire Agricultural Show
Held at Salesbury Hall in Ribchester, the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Show is packed full to the brim of Showjumping, Livestock Displays, The Return of the Black Stallion, Incredible Falconry Shows, A Children’s Village and so much more.
2. House music 'Garden Party' in Walmer Bridge
A new music festival is planned for Preston this summer - thanks to a teenage house music devotee. Already half of the tickets for the Preston Garden Party have sold out, which will see a host of mystery international house music stars play on stage on August 14.
3. ROCKPREST 2021
Rockprest is now in it’s 7th year and Moor Park Preston is the perfect setting for an amazing two day festival on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June
4. Lancashire Encounter Festival
Lancashire Encounter Festival is an authentic voice for Lancashire, celebrating the breadth of the County's diverse cultural offer with high quality and high profile arts.
