Burnley Business Improvement District (BID) has announced an exciting schedule of events taking place in 2024.
With a view to making the town as a destination hotspot for residents, visitors, employees and shoppers, the BID has announced activities designed to bring people into the town centre.
One highlight will be the return of Burnley Live on the weekend of May 4 and 5. The last live music event brought hundreds to the town. It will also be a chance to showcase the town’s pubs and bars.
Elsewhere, the Burnley Vintage & Performance Car Show will be back for the third year running on September 14. The event brings together a collection of classic cars, vehicles, and motorbikes, and drew in visitors from all over East Lancashire in both 2022 and 2023.
Seasonal events, such as the ever-popular Christmas Extravaganza, will see the town centre come alive with entertainment and attractions too, while Burnley BID will once again link up with town centre partners – including Charter Walk Shopping Centre and Burnley Council – to deliver activities during the school holidays that the whole family can enjoy.
The Burnley Artisan Market is also back in town on the first Saturday of every month from February to December, bringing homemade produce, handmade gifts, arts, crafts, and live music to St James’s Street and Charter Walk.
