Clitheroe’s first ever Foxyfest was a smash hit and could become a regular event on the music scene.

Around 300 people packed into St Michael and St John’s Centre for the festival which was organised by Clitheroe’s own successful band Good Foxy.
They had been due to take to the stage at the cancelled Summer Days festival so they, and a host of other musicians, decided to hold their own festival.
The eclectic line up included Clitheroe Pop Choir and Clitheroe Ukele Orchestra who kicked off the festival and there were sets by Neve and Freya, new young Clitheroe band, Palace Motion, The Remedy, Chris Hinnigan and the Roosevelt Room. Jazz Sohal played some retro vinyl music and the highlight of the evening was a storming set by Good Foxy.
A raffle raised £220 for the refugee charity Revive and there was n outdoor barbecue and bar.
The festival was hailed a success by Good Foxy mamager Duncan Sykora who said: “I would like to thank everyone who stepped in to make the event a success at the last minuute including the venue manager Kevin Shepherd and Jon Greaves who supplied the lights. We may do it again next summer.”
