A big night of entertainment is coming up at Clitheroe Castle bandstand.

On Saturday, August 6th, the ever-popular “Last Night of the Proms” concert returns to the town


Organised by the Clitheroe Town Council, this free event, which starts at 6-30 pm, once again features Slaidburn Silver Band.

Prom-goers are invited to take along a picnic and their Union Jacks to wave as they sing along to the Last night patriotic classics.

Although the event is free, organisers are asking people to make a donation, which will benefit three local worthwhile causes.

A spokesman for Clitheroe Town Council said: “The Mayor and the Town Council hope to see you all there for a fabulous night of great music and although the council stages this concert every year as a free event, if you can make a donation, any money raised will go to the Mayor’s chosen charities.

“This year they have been picked because of the services they offer directly to the community here in Clitheroe. They are The British Red Cross, Child Action North West and Ribble Valley Food Bank.

“The British Red Cross provides a range of services in Clitheroe – from helping people get back on their feet after a hospital stay to being there in a crisis. Meanwhile, ‘Raised in Ribble Valley’ is an initiative, which supports Child Action Northwest’s Emotiononal Health and Wellbeing Service.

" It is a free, specialist counselling service for children, teenagers and adults of all ages in the Ribble Valley who have experienced emotional trauma or families who are in crisis. In addition, the Ribble Valley Food Bank provides emergency food for local people in crisis.”
