Countryside Comes to Town organised by the Blackburn BID features a range of free family fun events from the enchanting world of princesses and street theatre to a giant talking compost heap and a 30 foot sleeping sow.
Pop Up Princesses, was founded by 26 year old Amy Toole from Pleasington and provides costumed portrayals of fictional characters for events, Amy said: “It’s exciting to be part of an event taking place in the town I grew up in. Countryside Comes to Town festival looks like it’s going to attract massive numbers and it’s a real privilege to be one of the stars of the show.”

Miss Toole, added: “The business has gone from strength to strength and in the near future we will be expanding and increasing the number of experienced actors posing as magical princesses.”
Manager of the Blackburn BID and Event Organiser, Harriet Roberts said: “Princess mania has taken over the world recently and we’re thrilled Amy Toole is going to be bringing her icy spectacular to our festival.
