Lancashire Life - - This Month -

This year marks the 85th an­niver­sary of the Friends of the Lake District and this month there’s a chance to show your sup­port for the area this month. The group will be hold­ing their 20th Fell Care Day which will be a chance for you to get in­volved with lit­ter pick­ing, hedge plant­ing, dry stone walling and more at But­ter­mere. Book your place in ad­vance, and find out more, at friend­soft­he­lakedis­trict. org.uk.

16TH AND 22ND-23RD

And Blackburn Cathe­dral will host their own frost fair a week later (from 4-9pm on the Fri­day and 10am-5pm on the Satur­day). The mar­ket will be held in the crypt, which is not cur­rently open to the gen­eral pub­lic, and will of­fer treats from ar­ti­san mak­ers from across Lan­cashire.

23RD-24TH

Ulver­ston is the stage for, among many oth­ers, an­nual fes­ti­vals of mu­sic, art, dance, fash­ion and walk­ing but one of the most pop­u­lar events on the packed cal­en­dar is the Dick­en­sian Festival which will be held this month. The event fea­tures sea­sonal mu­sic, danc­ing, chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment and tra­di­tional fes­tive fun along with Christ­mas mar­ket stalls with lots of unique gifts, fes­tive food. Shops along the cob­bled streets and wind­ing lanes al­ways get in­volved and plenty of peo­ple will be there in pe­riod cos­tume.

27TH

Novem­ber 27th was the day the first elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives from our county were called to Lon­don to take part in Ed­ward I’s Model Par­lia­ment 724 years ago, and it’s the day cho­sen to cel­e­brate our good for­tune in be­ing from here. You can mark the oc­ca­sion with Mor­ris Dancers, hot pot and other home-grown fun at Bolton Street Sta­tion in Bury the week­end be­fore (23rd-24th) and we en­cour­age you to make an ef­fort on the 27th too. Join us in rais­ing a glass of Lan­cashire beer, lo­cally dis­tilled gin, sar­sa­par­illa or Vimto to toast the Duke of Lan­caster, the Queen.
