Yogi Life will deliver an accessible, child friendly yoga workshop to promote mindfulness and calm. Plus, a fantastic selection of food and drink stalls will be available.

Pop-Up Adventure Playground are the official charity for the event. Their stand will give children the opportunity to enjoy free play using recycled and reclaimed materials.

Suzanna Law, from Pop-Up Adventure Playground said: "Join us at our Pop-Up Adventure Playground as we use re-purposed and recycled materials for child-directed play.

"There will be plenty of boxes, fabric, tubes and tubs for children to explore, build, change and dismantle - a great opportunity for children to follow their own lead and maybe get a little messy. Adults are welcome to relax and watch their children play freely at this open-ended play space."

Murray Dawson, Chairman of the #AmazingAccrington initiative, said: "#AmazingAccrington is 70% business - we are really keen to do what we can to get tills ringing for shopkeepers in the town and to increase footfall on the bank holiday weekend.

"We are so proud of this community; we want other people living in Accrington to shout about their home town, to encourage people to come into this town from surrounding areas, and events such as the music festival will help us do so!"
