Presenting! ‘Lancashire Land’


This area not only provides a home from home for any Lancastrian missing their home county but also a place for those to get more acquainted with one of the North’s most cherished land masses. 

There will be a wealth of traditional Lancastrian activities daily including:

Shopmobility scooter racing (mud permitting).
Chippy ‘Tea off’ mini golf.
Sausage rolling (store-bought sausage rolls prohibited).
Fred Dibnah Chimney Jenga for the kiddies.
Relaxing lard messages to soothe away festival aches and pains.
Gravy wrestling.

As a show of good faith, those travelling from Yorkshire are invited to join in on activities on the condition they are vouched for by two Lancastrian’s of good standing. 

See you in the fields!
