If you’re looking for something to do between now and the end of the year then there’s no need to stray too far – the Lancaster district has more than enough on offer to keep you and your family busy without digging deep in your pockets.
As well as our rolling countryside, golden sands and history galore, there’s a full range of festivals and events to whet the appetite.
In addition to many established events, 2012 will see celebrations for the Olympic Games, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 400th anniversary of the Lancashire Witch trials.
And as well as having a great time you’ll be helping to support the local economy.
Festivals and events have a direct impact on our economy, attracting more visitors to a destination, raising the profile of a place, creating investment and benefiting local businesses.
Last year the Seaside and Sandcastle festivals alone are estimated to have had a combined benefit for the local economy of nearly £1.4m.
So by supporting local events you’ll be helping to create and maintain jobs locally.
