ARTWORK has been unveiled in towns across East Lancashire to build support for a music venue exhibition.

The Lodestar in Ribchester was open from the 1950s until the 1980s and gained a reputation for its live music, and was a ‘unique’ venue for its time, playing host to the Sex Pistols.

Billboards featuring abstract artwork remembering the venue have now been put up in Richmond Terrace in Blackburn and near Turf Moor in Burnley.

Artists Kate Davis and David Moore designed the work showing sheets of music and poetry.

An exhibition remembering the pub made up of poetry, art and memories will take place at The Bureau Centre for the Arts in Blackburn from September 2 until 29.
