What's On

Renowned for good humour and quirkiness, Lancashire offers a unique brand of fun, and this is never more evident than when you look at our huge range of events.

From the world famous Blackpool Illuminations and the UKs biggest walkabout theatre in Lancaster to gravy wrestling in Bacup and tractor pulling championships in Eccleston, we have quite a choice!

Take a look below at some of the most popular events in Lancashire and be sure to check our What’s on Events search to the right.
