Festival Day

Goosnargh & Whittingham Whitsuntide Festival 2021


It is once again with deep regret that, in view of the continued situation, we have decided to cancel this year’s Festival which was due to take place on June 05th. The rates of COVID 19 while still dropping have not reduced to a level that we feel comfortable proceeding with the Festival in the way we would like. We understand the need for the village to celebrate and we are planning to organise a Scarecrow Festival similar to the event last year to allow everyone to get some fun from what would have been the week of the festival. Please look out for further announcements on this topic. 

With apologies and best regards

Nik Birkby & David Butters (Co-Chairmen)
