Welcome Back to Blackburn summer shows

Families across Lancashire are being invited to enjoy a weekend of amazing feel-good music shows to welcome you safely back into Blackburn town centre.

The ‘Welcome Back to Blackburn’ summer shows, organised by Blackburn BID, funded by Blackburn with Darwen Council and supported by King George’s Hall, will run between 30 July and 1 August on stage on King William Street.

The all-singing, all-dancing shows by Pop Up Entertainment will be free and open to all – offering safe, family-friendly entertainment.

The 25 minute shows will feature songs that you know and love – and are guaranteed to get people singing along to the hits. The shows will take place on Friday 30 July at 1pm, 2.30pm & 4pm; on Saturday at 11am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm & 3.30pm; and on Sunday at 11am, 12.30pm & 2.30pm.

Alongside the shows, the aim is to showcase local talented musicians and groups on the stage, to make it an amazing weekend of music.

Catherine Price, Blackburn town centre BID Manager, said: “As Blackburn town centre shows the green shoots of recovery after being faced by such tight restrictions we are delighted to be able to host this Covid-secure event. 

“The Welcome Back to Blackburn summer shows follow on from the success of the Blackburn Drive-In show in August 2020. We have once again joined forces with Pop Up Entertainment to provide an amazing event that everyone can enjoy for free.”
