Lytham Festival changes dates for 2018

Cuffe and Taylor, the organiser of Lytham Festival, has announced that the next edition will take place from 23-29 July 2018 to avoid clashing with the Ricoh Women’s British Golf Open held at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club.

The company reported that this year’s event drew to a close on Sunday 6 Agust having attracted 60,000 concert-goers along with the many thousands of people who have visited Lytham to be part of the five-day event.

“Lytham Festival 2017 has been tremendous,” said director Peter Taylor. “I am delighted with the success of the event and it never fails to please me just how our audiences react to such an eclectic and varied line up over the course of the festival.”

Taylor said the company is already well into the planning of Lytham Festival 2018 and  the full line-up will be revealed in due course.

Following on from consultation with all local partners, the organiser decided to bring the 2018 show a week earlier.

Taylor explained: “It makes absolute sense to do this because of the Ricoh Women’s British Golf Open. The Women’s British Golf Open is an international event for the Fylde Coast and by having Lytham Festival a week earlier it means we extend the benefit of these events to business and accommodation owners while also ensuring the Fylde Coast, once again, is put well and truly on the map.”

The Ricoh Women’s British Golf Open will take place from 2-5 August 2018.
