Padiham on Parade is back with a bang this weekend – but there are some road closures you need to be aware of.

Several car parks and roads are closed for the parade, which takes place this Saturday and Sunday (June 29 and 30).

Padiham on Parade gives visitors a unique chance to step back in time and celebrate the culture and style of the 1940s.

The weekend’s line-up features live retro performers from the marquee and DJ Dapper Dan on the town hall plaza, as well as vintage attire and classic cars.

The line-up will also feature exciting activities such as Punch and Judy, wartime crafts in the library, vintage bus rides to Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham Archives Museum, dance performances, and funfair rides.

Attendees can enjoy a selection of food and drink while browsing through stalls selling retro memorabilia and handmade crafts.

The event continues on Sunday with a spectacular display of military personnel and a remembrance parade from Memorial Park to the Town Hall.
