The organisers behind the Blackburn Festival of Light are celebrating their win in the Granada region People’s Project Award, thanks to the votes of local supporters.
The £50,000 award will help to fund a new ‘Let it Shine’ The People’s Parade initiative which would run throughout the summer holidays and work with families – ending in a celebratory carnival in the town centre.
The participants will get to do everything from helping to make costumes to learning performance and musical skills and they could even feature in the parade itself. This is great news for the team behind the successful Festival of Light and for the town as a whole.
The BID would like to thank all the businesses and people who voted.
Your support has been really appreciated.
Another exciting event to add to the Blackburn calendar.
We’ll update you as soon as we know more about the event.
