Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, in collaboration with Crafty Vintage, are planning a spectacular finale to the summer holiday events programme with a free family fun day on Saturday 31st August.

Hosted at the brand new Darwen Market Square, there’ll be everything from magic shows to a silent disco, Magical Story Jars, face painting, entertainment provided by Darwen School of Music and performances from a local singer and dance groups.

Youngsters will be able to create their own masterpieces with craft sessions By Erin or they can take a turn on the potter’s wheel.

And, if that’s not enough, there’ll be a street dance workshop to learn some new moves!
