Venues confirmed and Wristbands on sale for Chorley Live
Organisers of the popular Chorley Live event can now announce the venues taking part in this year’s live entertainment extravaganza, with wristbands now available to purchase at just £5.
Chorley Council has teamed up once again with The Creative Network to hold the weekend event which has proved to be a massive hit for the last three years bringing over 7,000 people into the town over the two days last year.
The new venues taking part this year are The Buttonhole on Chapel Street, My Favourite Sweet Shop, on Market Street, Trader Jacks on Hollingshead Street, and at the Covered Market incorporating the Bob Inn, Pizza Pronto, Bees Country Kitchen and Classy Sandwich.
Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said: “Chorley Live has been a huge success over the last three years and we want to make it even bigger and better this year.
“We have a number of new venues again this year and we are really looking forward to seeing the turnout and how people enjoy the different performances in such a wide variety of locations across the town centre.
“It’s particularly good to see a couple of new businesses taking part and I hope this will give them a great start to life in Chorley.
“The event will not only boost our local economy and improve trade in Chorley businesses, but it will also attract more of the public into Chorley to enjoy the nightlife and see everything Chorley has to offer with entertainment for all ages and families.”
The wristbands that will enable people to gain entry to all the venues over both days are now on sale from all the acts and also the venues, with the exception of the Town Hall, but can be purchased from the Union Street offices instead. Wristbands cost £5, with children under 12 having free access with adults.
Nigel Stewart, of the Creative Network and who will be organising the acts, said the event brings the town centre alive at night.
“It’s fantastic to see how many businesses are happy to offer themselves as venues, and how it’s bringing companies together to show they are willing to get involved with the event and promote the town.
“The venues are already excited for the amount of interest people have had in the event. We are expecting wristbands to sell very well again and that’s not surprising at just £5 for a wristband – you get so much for your money.”
“The performers will also be selling wristbands and it’s going to be a great opportunity for performers to get out there and show off their talents to new faces and followers.
“We have had a great response for people wanting to perform but we would still like to hear from solo performers who would like to be involved and urge them to come forward”
