Chorley came A-LIVE at the weekend

Monday, 9th October 2017

Thousands of people enjoyed a weekend of live entertainment in Chorley as the fifth Chorley Live met huge success.

Over 10,000 people of all ages attended the reputable two night event in Lancashire and enjoyed music of every genre from jazz to rock in venues ranging from pubs and restaurants to a sweet shop, a bank and a library.

The event, which is organised by Chorley Council and the Creative Network, saw more than 236 live performances across 30 venues.

Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said: “Chorley Live yet again proved to be a fantastic weekend. We had so many wonderful comments from people all over the North West and further afield who came to enjoy the unique music event.

“Events like this are just one of the many things we’re doing to improve our town centre and make it a place people want to come and visit on a regular basis.

“It’s given a real boost to the night-time economy and it is so great to see how people can come together and enjoy what Chorley has to offer.”

The event saw members of the community come together with both businesses and performers positively shocked by the turn out as visitors enjoyed the array of entertainment on offer. Many reported that it was one of the busiest weekends they could remember with visitors having to queue at some of the venues.

Nigel Stewart, of The Creative Network, and who created the ‘Live’ concept said he was overwhelmed by the success of this year’s event.

“To have so many people coming into Chorley town centre over two nights is just amazing,” he said.

“Each year succeeds the last and I must pay tribute to the team of volunteers, the performers and the venues who all work tremendously hard to make the event happen.

“The acts were again of a terrific standard and it’s just mind-blowing what we could achieve in future years.”
