Nigel Stewart from The Creative Network said: “You can’t buy fish and chips for £5! This is unbelievable value for money. Our local acts just get better and better at every festival. And, this year, with over 20 venues, it’s a bumper experience! There’s a type of music for everyone, so come and support our community.”

The full event schedule and more information on the shuttle buses, can be found on the Discover South Ribble website.

Penwortham Live is part of South Ribble Live, which also includes Longton Live – set to return on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 July, with more details to follow.
