Highlights include Ruby Turner, the Swing Commanders, the Hamsters on their farewell tour and the Promenade Concert Orchestra. Elsewhere, other event highlights include the return of Shakespeare in the Castle, North West Scooter Rally at the Carleton in Morecambe, and Magical Day at Happy Mount Park.
