FAMILIES across Lancashire are being invited to roll up and enjoy The Greatest Bank Holiday Drive-In Show.

Taking place in Blackburn town centre at a secret location, visitors can enjoy a day out in the town at the first event since lockdown.

The drive-in experience is also a first for the town centre and will offer socially distanced family-friendly entertainment on Sunday 30 August.

The all singing, all dancing drive-in show, brought by Blackburn BID and Pop Up Entertainment, will be held in the centre of Blackburn town centre from 1pm.

It will feature songs from all hit films and musicals, with a special feature of songs from the hugely popular The Greatest Showman.

To prevent people attending without paying, the exact location will only be revealed once the tickets have been purchased.

The show will last an hour and a half and is guaranteed to get everyone’s toes tapping and the whole family singing along to the hits.

Catherine Price, Blackburn BID Manager, said: “This year all of our planned events and activities in the town centre have had to be put on hold due to Covid-19.

“We have been working with Pop Up Entertainment, who have provided incredible performances at Christmas and are based in Blackburn town centre, to provide a safe, amazing event for over the Bank Holiday weekend that everyone can enjoy.

“The cars will be parked around the stage in a circle, the show will be performed ‘in the round’ and the audience will be provided with headphones so they can enjoy the fantastic drive-in experience from the safety of their own cars.”

Tickets are priced at £25 per car – and will include free parking for the town centre so visitors can enjoy the show then visit nearby restaurants for a bite to eat.

Organisers expect tickets to be snapped up quickly.
