Councillor Paul Foster, Leader of South Ribble Borough Council, said: “It’s fantastic that we can finally bring this event to life.

“So many people were disappointed when last year’s event was cancelled, but we had to do what we needed to do to keep people safe.

“We’re absolutely delighted to bring an even bigger and better event to South Ribble in 2022 for everyone to enjoy as we get back to enjoying live music.

“If you’re looking for a perfect Christmas present for a loved one, or just want to treat yourself, get your tickets now!”
