The Lancashire Encounter weekend got underway on Friday evening in spectacular fashion with music, dancing, lights and red balloons.Advertisement
On the Flag Market people gathered to watch and get involved with the Kuljit Bhamra dance troupe in front of the Harris Museum looking good in its golden illumination.
Then it was on to Fishergate for a different type of dancing and a piece called Light Migrations by the Ludas Dance group. The young dancers created a great atmosphere with their LED light bands and their movement to the upbeat music.
The entertainment didn’t stop there – the next stop for the crowd was the covered market area where there was a ‘Sound Intervention’. Music and light projections plus some strange costumes!
And, if we are talking about strange, then the temporary installation of red balloons in the alleyway that is Surgeon’s Court is up there. Not as many balloons as I’d envisaged having read the description but worth a look.
It promises to be another wonderful Lancashire Encounter – welcome back!
Here’s our breakdown of everything that’s on during Saturday and Sunday.
