Clock in for the 2017 Prescot Festival

FESTIVAL planners in the historic Lancashire Town of Prescot, Merseyside, have announced the line up for their 13th year.

Leyland Brass Band, Chilled Lemons Jazz Quartet, Phoenix Concert Orchestra and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Girl Choristers are among the musical acts on the 10 day programme this June.

The clock turns back 4 decades for a repeat screening of Whiston born playwright Willy Russell's comedy drama 'Our Day Out'. The classic BBC's 'Play for Today' celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year.

In keeping with the theme, the Clock Face pub hosts Clockfest a medley of local musical talent and the theme of this year's Short Story Competition, offering a ₤100 grand prize, is 'Clocking Off.'

Other highlights include a return visit from internationally renowned organist Professor Dr Ian Tracey, a 'Come and Sing' performance of John Rutter's choral 'Magnificat', and a 'Proms' style finale featuring a prestigious musical ensemble to be confirmed soon.

"We're beyond proud to be delivering an unrivalled programme of top quality arts and music for yet another year. As usual, our focus is on making creative, inspiring experiences accessible and affordable to everyone in the community. Whether you like an orchestra or an acoustic band, there'll be something for you and perhaps something a bit different to try out, too." said artistic director Dr Robert Howard.

The 13th Annual Prescot Festival of Music and the Arts runs from Friday, 16 June 2017 to Sunday, 25 June 2017. Full programme information, including information on how to participate in the Come and Sing or enter the Short Story Competition, is at the official website.
