The Museum of Lancancashire is hosting a Lancashire Neet put on by its Friends group.

Lancashire Archives are holding a coffee morning on Lancashire Day itself from 10am to 1pm.

They are inviting anyone along to sample delicious homemade cakes and raise money for the Hulton Appeal. Original material from the Hulton archive collection will be on display.

The Hultons were a major Lancastrian family and their lifestyle is said to have inspired hit TV series Downton Abbey.

He will tell tales of our ancestors and Lancashire Life in the 21st century.

Tickets are £7 for the event on Lancashire Day which runs from 1pm to 3pm. Tickets include a tea or coffee and a Chorley Cake in the interval.
