A highlight of last year’s RIBFEST, Rock on the Rec is back this Saturday (July 22) with live music from exciting rock - indie bands from 1pm to 7pm.

The Viktorians, The Pinstripe Pigeon Band, 53 Degrees North, Gamblers Caves, Cromwell Ridgers and Paul Tierney will play on a live stage at this event, which is free, on Ribchester’s playing field.

Rock on the Rec is being organised by Ribchester Rovers Football Club in aid of their new pavilion and all donations will be appreciated.

There will also be stalls and refreshments.

RIBFEST opened amidst glorious sunshine for the the world premiere of Ribchester Amateur Theatrical Society’s promenade show ‘Poison in the Parish’ written by the society’s own Bridget Rabbitts.
