Welcome to Lancaster

What's on

See below for selected highlights of events taking place throughout the district in 2016. Please use the search box at the top right hand corner of this page to browse all events.

Most events are family friendly and include the ever-captivating outdoor promenade theatre production staged by the Dukes in Williamson Park during the summer months; the fantastic sounds of the Lancaster Music Festival in October which offers everything from soul to ska and rock to reggae; and the amazing light installations and stunning fireworks of Light Up Lancaster in November.

For other local and community events and classes please see the What’s On page on Lancaster City Council’s website.
