With coronavirus restrictions now easing across Lancashire and Cumbria many of us will be looking to fill our weekends with fun to make up for time lost during lockdown.
At LancsLive we have hand-picked a selection of free and paid events taking place this weekend.
There’s lots to do with the kids including a jumble trail and fundraising event with entertainment. And there’s loads to enjoy for adults with comedy, an outdoor music festival and even a strong man/woman competition.
You won’t have far to travel either with events taking place across the county including Chorley, Lancaster and Southport.
Don’t forget to let us know about any upcoming events you have organised and we can include these for future weekends.
