A popular annual festival has announced its return this summer.

Tottington’s Big Day Out will take place in the town on Sunday, July 7 from noon until 6pm and will be held on Crompton Meadows on Beryl Avenue.

A full line-up has not yet been announced but festival organisers are inviting previous stall holders to apply for a space on the field, new vendors will be invited to apply this month.

The festival will host its usual line-up of attractions, including six live bands, a full bar, and a "kids zone", including a bouncy castle, playground and hook-a-duck.

The festival will also serve refreshments including a barbecue, fish and chips and an ice cream van.

Organiser Scott Parkinson said: "A lot of hard work goes into this event - both leading up to it and on the day itself.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers from the cricket club and St Anne's Church who strive every year to keep this a safe, welcoming, family day out for the whole community.

“We will announce, closer to the time, both the live bands and the array of stalls and other attractions.

"But you rest assured that whatever your age or background, there will be something for you!"

The festival returns for its second year following a hiatus due to the pandemic.

Last year's event boasted an exciting line-up featuring Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons tribute act, the Jersey Coasters, P*Starr, the North West’s "premier" funk band, and Just like a P!nk, a tribute to the American superstar singer.
