Some people have asked why we’re not taking part in Chorley Live this year so here’s the definite all-purpose answer.
Chorley Live is organised by Chorley Council and Nigel Stewart of The Creative Network and is a fantastic event that takes place right across the Town Centre. We’ve been involved since the start and for the past 4 years have had dozens of acts on our stage and thousands of people through the door. But it’s hard work and we’re all volunteers so this year just fancied some time off.
For every other week of the year we programme what’s on at Chorley Little Theatre ourselves and try to have events that we know we can cope with and can easily stage around all our activities. This year we must get our October play The Railway Children ready, and it’s a big production. We can slot in some comedians and film screenings throughout October but 2 days of bands is harder work, takes up many hours, and just not possible with the set we have to build.
On top of this the volunteers who’ve run the Chorley Live nights for the last 4 years would quite like to go out and experience it themselves.
In the meantime, we wish all the best to everyone taking part in Chorley Live 2016 and will maybe see you out and about that weekend.
