Barrowford Lifestyle Festival draws crowd of 10,000!


The 2015 Barrowford Lifestyle Festival has been a huge success with around 10,000 people reported to have turned out on the day!

The festival, which was sponsored by Farnworth Rose Solicitors in Lancashire, proved to be a fun filled day for all the family.

With the sun shining visitors flocked to the festival to enjoy live music, sports organised by Burnley FC in the community, face painting, a classic car show and much more.

Businesses from around the local area showcased their products with cooking demonstrations, ‘Crack the Code’ locksmith competitions and arts and craft presentations taking place throughout the day.

Here at Farnworth Rose Solicitors, we also hosted the Barrowford Lifestyle Festival ‘Quacky Races’ children’s duck race and the ‘High Flyers’ corporate duck race.

500 ducks were entered into the ‘Quacky Races’ duck race with three lucky winners taking home a great selection of prizes courtesy of Presentation in Barrowford.

The duck races allowed us to raise over £800 with all proceeds going towards the restoration of Barrowford Park and next year’s festival. Special thanks go to all the local businesses who contributed by purchasing a duck for the ‘High Flyers’ Corporate Duck Race including:

Hartley’s Farm Foods, Ultra Finishing, IT93, Tone, Taylforths, Sally & Co Hairdressing, Matthew Kibble Transport Limited, ADPAK, Angles for Hair, Pet Angels, Domvielle, White Swan, Jon Naylor Financial Services, Broden Lloyd, Birchall Food Services, Paul’s Kitchen, Significant Vision, ekmPowershop, SLM Care and Giddy Kippers.

Playing a part in the local community

Having recently opened a new office in Barrowford, the team at Farnworth Rose Solicitors was delighted to get involved with such a great community event.

We had a team of dedicated volunteers present on the day lending a helping hand around the festival. They could also been seen handing out giveaways including balloons, swirly pops, pens and keyring bottle openers.

Richard Farnworth, Director at Farnworth Rose Solicitors, commented: ‘It was fantastic to see so many people attend the festival and help make it a great success.

‘At Farnworth Rose Solicitors we are always pleased to play a part in the local community and it was great to see so many local businesses embracing the Barrowford Lifestyle Festival.â?
