60’s Festival Looking For Cool New Ideas



The Rossendale 60’s Festival is now in its fourth year, and the organisers of the festival are looking to community groups to come up with new ideas that will help bring a 60’s atmosphere to your area. The ideas can include any aspect of the 60’s era. It could relate to fashion, food, music, arts, crafts, it’s entirely up to you. It’s a great opportunity for grandparents to  share their experiences of living through this magical era with their children and grandchildren, and raise funds for your group, community or local charity.The Festival will be running over the weekend of 9th, 10th and 11th September

Since we first posted this appeal, we have three new events joining the Festival this year:

The Boo Theatre in Waterfoot is staging ‘Baby Boogie’on Sunday 11th September, which will be a sensory Baby Disco set to 60s music with lots of stimulation with a groovy psychedelic flavour.

The Crown Inn in Bacup will be putting on a 60’s themed event over the Festival weekend (details to be announced)

The Clog Market will be on Rawtenstall Town Square on Sunday 11th September

The Rossendale 60’s Festival organising group will promote your event through our extensive press, radio and social media network, and even provide you with guidance on how to organise the event.This could be an opportunity to raise money for your group or a charity.

So think 60’s and contact us with your ideas at b.hyde3@ntlworld.com
