Things to do locally

* slight exaggeration and obviously includes Ansdell, Fairhaven & St Annes and even some neighbouring areas.

PLANNING YOUR YEAR

Whether you are a local planning when to take holidays or visitors knowing the right time to visit I hope this helps? I know ‘something for everyone’ is a massively overused cliche, but it perfectly describes the Events coming up!

From Outdoor Theatre  to Open Water (at Fairhaven) Carnivals, Classic Cars, Club Days, Christmas Lights, Brass in the Park and Food on the Lawn, the 10th great year of Lytham Festival bringing BIG names & current acts to the Fylde Coast, the continuing success of the International Kite Festival & 1940’s weekend end bringing 1000’s of people into the area and boosting our economy and you lucky locals have ALL this on your doorstep! Can anyone really say ‘Nothing much goes on around here’!

These are just the BIG general interest events, there is always LOTS of smaller specific interest events too.  To stay informed follow me on (mainly) Facebook & Twitter for up to date info. Regularly check out the Events Page of this website HERE plus that’s where you will find more details & tickets links to these (and MORE events)

Forgive me if I have missed anything from the list, I know I probably have……and someone WILL let me know!
