Locally Run

Spot On, run by Culturapedia, is Lancashire’s rural and library-touring theatre network. It hosts high-quality professional arts events in local venues. With over 40 volunteer community promoters, Spot On wants to give everyone the chance of a good night out on their doorstep. With more than 50 shows a year, but this is the first time they’ve held a festival of this scale over a weekend.

Food and drink is an essential part of the festival. Culturapedia is calling out for traders, bar, cafe and restaurant owners to come forward with ideas about how to incorporate their offer into the festival planning. You might want to offer a special deal over the weekend to entice the crowds into your cafe/shop/bar. Be creative – programme your own musician or band over the weekend, and add it to the programme. Traders taking part, either with special offers or extra entertainment programming, will be offered reciprocal marketing on social media platforms. Anyone interested can talk to the
team at the Community Hall or contact Culturapedia on 01254 674777 or email

Poulton-le-Fylde Community Hall, Culturapedia and Wyre Council are hosting the Spot On Festival: Poulton-le-Fylde with support from Wyre Council and Arts Council England. Visit the Spot On Lancashire Festival website for the full programme at
