Thousands of festival-goers descended on Clitheroe Castle at the weekend to enjoy an established event which aims to use the power of music to raise funds to help fight cancer.

Around 2,500 people braved the windy and some times wet weather conditions, to enjoy the Beats Cancer Music Festival 2017 held in the castle grounds.

Beats Cancer, which was organised by a group of friends from Clitheroe who have all lost a relative to cancer, hosted the annual festival, now in its fourth year, in partnership with online ticket outlet Skiddle.

All proceeds made from ticket sales will be donated to cancer charities Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. A total of £11,000 was raised last year.

More than 20 acts across four stages played a mix of electronic music from house, funk, disco and techno.

Acts included British DJ and producer Judge Jules, Josh Butler and K-Klass.

There were also licensed bars, plus a variety of food and other stalls and entertainment.
