Enjoy fun at free events this summer

The fabulous Green Fayre is the main attraction in July’s events calendar in West Lancashire’s wonderful parks.

An exciting array of craft displays and musical entertainment have been lined up for the weekend of the hugely popular free Fayre, which takes place at Beacon Country Park on 19 and 20 July.

There will be working woodlands demonstrations of chainsaw carving, willow weaving and basket making, while the main arena will feature dog displays, historical re-enactments and birds of prey displays. There will also be plenty of entertainment aimed at the children at this fantastic free day out. More details about the Green Fayre will be revealed soon.

Councillor David Sudworth, portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “The Green Fayre is a fantastic day out for all the family but there are so many other events for people to enjoy in July, so put the dates in your diary and make sure you don’t miss out.”
