Rawtenstall Annual Fair

Rawtenstall Annual Fair

The much loved Rawtenstall Annual Fair returns to the Whitaker this year on Saturday, 7 July and is sure to be another huge success. This family friendly event is completely FREE to attend and will play host to an array of local acts to suit all tastes. Having been at the Whitaker for several years now, this unique event is an opportunity for the county to celebrate our traditional dialect through, music, song and dance. 

And don't worry, we've also set up a large screen upstairs in the House so you can keep a close check on the England v's Sweden match!
