Despite its name this is the first festival in celebration of Ulverston and Stan Laurel who was born in the town. On this Saturday 14th June there will be street theatre, art, music, comedy and busking around the town centre. All events are free except for the headline event which features Paul Merton and friends in the Roxy Cinema on Saturday night.
There are 9 different venues, all within a few minutes’ walk of each other, plus several pop-up shops. It starts at 10.00 am and goes on until late. Furness Tradition will be leading a folk music session in the Hope and Anchor from 1.00 pm.
Ulverston is the place to be this weekend. For more information check out the website.
