The Lytham Festival…!

What a fabulous week of entertainment during the Lytham Festival with music from Rae Morris, Tenors of Rock, Rebecca Ferguson, Scouting for Girls,  Faithless, Billy Ocean, East17, 5ive, Jimmy Sommerville (my favourite), Chesney Hawkes (dreamy!), Sinitta, McBusted, Jonathon Antoine, Laura Wright, AJ Brown, the Tootsie Rollers, Elaine Paige and Marti Pellow (my apologies if I’ve left someone off the list)!

Chesney!

But there were award winning comedians playing to the crowds as well and the Festival of Stories…a celebration of literature, art, word play, story telling, with Julian Clary and cult children’s author Joseph Delaney.  And don’t forget Grease and Moulin Rouge screened outside at Lytham Hall.

Danbro were delighted to sponsor the festival this year and the Danbro Rock Choir even took part on the Monday night at the Lowther Pavilion and Sunday night on the main stage.

Well done guys you were brilliant!

Saturday night and McBusted were the headlining act…they were fantastic….fun, energetic and great entertainment (and a little naughty)!

Our very own Debbie Mahon got to experience a “meet and greet” and loved every minute!

 

On the Sunday, at the Last Night of the Proms, the amazing RAF Falcons parachuted into the arena!  All looked rather dapper on stage afterwards in their uniforms!

Well lovely Lytham welcomed over 70,000 visitors this last week to see Lancashire’s largest live music event!

Lots of people!

Lots of people!

So here’s looking forward to 2016!

Behind the Scenes…

As sponsors of the Lytham Festival this year Danbro staff were invited to a “behind the scenes” look at the arena last night…trust me it looks a lot bigger from inside!

View from the stage!

The tour included the “green room” (where the performers sit just before going on stage), dressing rooms, the enormous stage and the VIP area.

 

 

Such a cool look!
Such a cool look!

 

Unfortunately it was a bit of a gloomy night weather wise but here’s a couple of the lads rockin’ the festival look!

The whole area looks great and there’s so much to do including plenty of choices when it comes to eating!

The catering staff will look after over 750 covers every night in the VIP area alone!  The menu this year has been tweaked to tie in with the theme of the evening…so the 80/90s night will be interesting!  But I can safely say if the canapés are anything to go by you are in for a treat!

 

Our thanks to Cuffe & Taylor for inviting us and showing us around!

See you over the weekend…look out for the Danbro Rock Choir performing on Sunday evening!
