A night-time carnival procession with a firework finale fired from Clitheroe Castle on Saturday 25th August 2012, commemorating both the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London 2012 Olympic Games.
During the daytime, there will be a wide variety of entertainment on offer to the anticipated crowds, including the following:

A funfair will be on the castle field all weekend and during the street entertainment there will be street theatre and face painting at various venues on Castle Street.
The Float procession will be preceded by a Cycle Procession which is open to anyone who has a roadworthy bike and a helmet. Prizes are to be awarded for the best dressed and most unusual bike adornments. Similarly, prizes will be awarded for the Floats.
The fireworks will be set off from the north sides of the Castle Keep. The best places for viewing are between Bawdlands, Castle View and Castle Street. We hope you all enjoy the display and please ensure that pets are kept safe indoors.
