Forecasters are predicting bright sunshine and winds of up to 15mph for the Oasis frontman’s near sell-out show on The Green.

Organisers had to cancel the screening of Star Wars The Force Awakens half way through on Wednesday after winds of more than 40mph sparked safety fears.

This morning, Lytham Festival posted on its Facebook page: “Never FEAR the Sun is HERE ☀️- who’s excited for Noel Gallagher tonight!!
