Just bumping this up for anyone who is interested. Mel and I have been in previous years and have found it very interesting, lots going on and the Hall is worth a walk around. There is also a very decent cafe.

It is 30th July, I have changed it on the original post. I had taken the date from the Chorley Branch website and they still had last years info on.
Look forward to seeing you Mel.
