FanZone comes to town

24 June 2016

The Blackburn Rovers FanZone will be a focal attraction at Saturday's huge Countryside Comes To Town festival in Blackburn town centre.

Taking centre stage on the pedestrianised section of King William Street, the FanZone will be returning to the same location as last summer's successful Rovers Roadshow, and will provide a perfect festival-feel mixture of music and football.

Several top local acts, provided by McNally Music Tuition and Reidys, will be appearing on the stage between 10am and 5pm to showcase a wide genre of musical styles, with plenty of Rovers chat, giveaways and promotions taking place between each artist's appearance.

Weather permitting, the popular Penalty Shoot Out Challenge - which became a regular feature towards the end of the season at Ewood Park - will also be open for business next to the FanZone stage, allowing fans to test the speed of their shooting ability.

The Rovers representation forms part of a wider event encompassing the entire town centre, with a farm, fairground rides, stalls selling local produce and an additional festival arena meaning that you'll never be far from some intriguing action throughout the day.

TV stars Nadiya Hussain - winner of the Great British Bake Off - and Mr Bloom of CBeebies fame will also form part of a festival to suit the whole family.
