If you were a young dancer in East Lancashire in the 1990s, then a date at Oswaldtwistle Civic Theatre was likely to be in you diary.

For the venue hosted the annual Hyndburn Dance Festival attracting young performers from across the area.

We have been back into the archives to dig out these photos which shows some of those who took part more than 25 years ago.

We got a surprise on one of them as it shows Natalie Gumede who would go on to star in Coronation Street and also took part in Strictly Come Dancing finishing second in 2013 with professional partner Artem Chigvintsev behind Abbey Clancy and Aljaz Skorjanec.

Perhaps you took part in the dance festival or recognise one of the young dancers who did.

If you have any photos of the event over the years, we would love to share them with Looking Back readers. You can email them to bygones@nqnw.co.uk or leave a comment.
