The Scooter event, that has been an integral part of the Rossendale 60’s Festival for the past 3 years, has a new venue this year, and the organisers are taking the opportunity to rebrand the event ‘Scoot Rossendale‘. The new venue is Bacup Cricket Club and grounds, which is perfect for the event both as a venue and Bacup’s central location within the Rossendale Valley being at the crossroads of the major roads from Burnley, Rochdale (including the M62), Todmorden and Rawtenstall (which includes the M66 motorway).It provides a great opportunity to ride through the beautiful Rossendale valley adding to the 60’s weekend atmosphere along the way.The event will be held on Sunday 11th September.
Music will be provided by Burnley based Northern Soul DJ Keiron Woodward,
