MUSICIANS and community groups in East Lancashire are being called on to sign up for England’s largest summer community music festival.

Our Big Gig will host hundreds of music events in communities across the country from July 11 to July 13. Funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government, Our Big Gig celebrates local music, showcasing new and existing talent, and gives people the opportunity to have a go at making music.

Last summer, performances took place at the Pavilion and playing fields in Chatburn, the community centre in Chorley, Rhyddings Park in Oswaldtwistle and The Attic in Accrington.

Organiser Stephen Williams said: “Our Big Gig is a great opportunity for local people to take the lead in putting on a musical event that unites their local community, celebrates home grown talent and inspires people without a background in music to get involved.”

To apply to host an Our Big Gig event, visit www.ourbiggig.co.uk. The deadline for applications is March 31.
