The best part of being in Lancashire (apart from the views, the food, the nature, the cities, the people… and the list goes on!) is that there’s always something going on.
Lancashire is a fantastic county for entertainment and arts, as well as walking, food and drink events, and much more.
This spring, there are some really exciting events happening and we’re outlining a handful of them below!
Highest Point Festival
This music festival in Lancaster’s Williamson Park (with the Ashton Memorial in the Park being the highest point of Lancaster) is an incredible weekend, year after year. There are numerous stages spanning different music genres and mouthwatering food and drink options.
Previous years have seen huge headliners, including Sister Sledge, Feeder, Rag’n’Bone Man, James, Rudimental, and Rick Astley.
2022’s full lineup hasn’t been announced yet, but keep your eye on the Highest Point Festival website for more details TBC soon.
Date: Thursday 12th – Saturday 14th May 2022
Love him or hate him, Jimmy Carr is going to be bringing his outrageous comedy to Lancashire this year. He’ll be performing his newest show Terribly Funny at Blackpool Winter Gardens in March and, if you have a penchant for jokes that make you go ‘oooff!’, this could be a show not to miss.
Date: 13th March 2022
Another comedy legend on this list, Russell Brand will be performing his new show 33 at Opera House Blackpool in May.
This show has been described as “Russell Brand performing stand up on the strangeness of the last 18 months: what have we learned and not learned? And how do you ‘get back to normal’ if you’ve never been normal?”.

They’ll be playing at The Atkinson in Southport in April and will be music to the ears of the masses, regardless of music taste.

Sally Morgan (a.k.a. Psychic Sally) will be performing at Lancaster’s The Grand Theatre in March.
