Leyland Festival Parade – Road Closure Information
In order to let our fabulous Festival Parade travel safely through the town, we need to temporarily close the parade route – and some other roads – to all other traffic for the duration of the parade.
The road closures will start from 10.45 am and we expect all roads to return to normal by approximately 1.15 pm.
The parade route uses the following roads:
- King Street
- Turpin Green
- Hough Lane
- St Andrew’s Way
- Church Road
- Worden Lane
Other roads in the vicinity of the route will also be affected. We plan the closures really carefully and do everything we can to minimise disruption. Keep an eye out for the yellow signs around town, which give you information about which roads are affected. If you are travelling to Leyland town centre for the festival parade, we advise you to set off early – that way you avoid the road closures and you’ll get the best viewing spots for the parade!
If you are heading straight to Worden Park to see the parade arrive there, we recommend that you access the free parking at Runshaw College, Langdale Road, via either Bent Lane or Heald House Road. We recommend that any through traffic finds an alternate route during the closure periods.
