FESTIVAL is . . . a week of exhibitions, competitions, events
at St Mary's Brownedge, Bamber Bridge, Preston PR5 6SP
Festival Chairman Rev Mark Harold, Parish Priest

Festival began modestly in 2000 in celebration of the completion of a major renovation of the church. Though small that year, it was so successful that it was decided to continue on an annual basis. The first Festival had few concerts but from 2001 there has been a events every day from Sunday to Friday.

In 2002 Festival marked the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and in this and succeeding years generous local sponsorship has seen the addition of an open art competition, an amateur photographic competition (both with fine trophies), floral and other displays, workshops and an afternoon or evening event each day. There are entry fees for the art competition which carries cash prizes but the digital photo competitions, all concerts, workshops and displays are free to enter and view - donations welcome.
