Nelson Town Council is to host their annual Lancashire Day and Christmas Lights switch on.

The free event promises to be filled with entertainment for all the family, and will end with a spectacular firework display.

Lancashire Day is traditionally held on November 27 every year and is a commemoration of the day in 1295 when Lancashire first sent representatives to Parliament.

This year, Nelson will celebrate the day at the same time as the Christmas light switch on, and the Mayor of Pendle will officially open the ceremony with a town crier proclamation.

There will be plenty of things to get involved with, including a kids funfair and an ice skating rink outside the library.

Food and drinks stalls will be available and there'll also be live music from some of East Lancs best bands.

Nelson's Christmas lights will then be switched on at 6pm and the day will end with a firework extravaganza.

The event will be held in Nelson town centre on Saturday November 24 from 11am until 6pm.
