Ribchester plays host to regular events as part of its annual festivities calendar. The community also organises other one-off events to celebrate, fundraise or improve our village.
Field Day [ Saturday 16th June]
The highlight of the Village's annual calendar and an event that is enjoyed by the whole village. Ribchester Field Day incorporates a parade along Blackburn Road and Water Street - with decorated floats, fancy dress and much more including, of course, the Field Day Queen and her retinue. The parade ends with an afternoon of celebration and fun on the Playing Field.
Planning is now underway for a slightly different Field day 2018
Events start Friday the 15th with a 'RATS' concert from the multi talented Amateur Theatrical Society.
Following the parade and other events on the field Saturday evening sees the BIG EVENT with ELLA SHAW fresh from Tv's Britains Got Talent.
The annual market takes place on the last Monday in May. It is the perfect time for a family day out with opportunity to discover and shop at many local market stalls.
This monthly market is held at the Sports and Social Club on the first Saturday of the month between February and December from 10am to 2pm. Further dertails are available from Andrew Wallin (01254 820678).
