Preparations are well underway for an exciting Leyland music and entertainments festival.

Leyland Live is due to take place between July 6 and 8, to coincide with the Leyland Festival, and will include music, drama and comedy acts perform live in 12 different venues across the town centre.

There will be music to suit all tastes, from folk, to rock, to jazz, as well as special events at various other Leyland businesses.

These include an afternoon tea, with champagne, at Coppers Tea Rooms, entertainment at The Railway, on Preston Road, and The Original Ship Inn, on Towngate, as well as various drama and poetry performances.

Coppers Tea Rooms will also be launching a wine and dine menu, which will be available to customers every Friday.

Headlining the event will be Super 8 Cynics, an upcoming new wave band who have just been signed by Manchester label, Longevity Records.

Frontman Ady Hal, 32, will be performing alongside Mike Healey, Jack Ellis and Paul Barlow.

The band, who are inspired by Duran Duran recently announced that their debut single will be a cover of Ricky Gervais’ forgotten 80s single, Bitter Heart.

Ady, who lives in Leyland, said: “Really looking forward to being a part of Leyland Live.

“The whole town has come alive during the last few festival weekends.

“The addition of music, arts and drama is a fantastic idea, which should bring an exciting new dimension to the celebration this year.”
