Welcome to our creative Children’s Activity Page for Leyland Festival 2019!
This year’s Leyland Festival is fast approaching, and we are keen for schools in our local community to get involved. Firstly, we are inviting all schools in South Ribble and surrounding areas to take part in the Festival on the day either by entering a float, walking with the parade or having a stall in Worden Park.
If you would like to know more about these options, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer your questions and reserve your space in the festival parade and/or on Worden Park. Our theme for 2019 is ‘Musicals’ so we would love to see lots of fancy-dress costumes on the day inspired by musical theatre.
Below are suggestions of some activities where children, schools and families can get involved and support the Leyland Festival:

We have created this fun festival education pack to inspire local schools and nurseries to get involved in Leyland Festival. It is full of ideas and resources to get children engaged and excited about this important local event.
Leyland Festival has a rich history. This is the 130th year since the very first Leyland Festival. We believe it is important for children to learn about the local communities they grow up in and that learning about Leyland Festival would be both interesting and important for local children.
Our theme for 2019 is ‘Musicals’ so we’d love to see lots of fancy-dress costumes on the day inspired by musical theatre.
