A number of major changes have been planned to reshape the annual seasonal Whalley Pickwick celebrations. This means moving it from an evening event on a Thursday to a weekend daytime event to be held on a Sunday for the first time.

This year we plan to have stalls on the Co-op car park, childrens rides and attractions and a craft market in the Whalley Village Hall. Other activities planned are "Whalley Pickwick at the Salvage Yard" (Back of King Street), Indoor Stalls and Santa's Grotto at the Methodist Hall, Activities and stalls at The Old Grammar School and refeshments and Bell Ringing at the Parish Church.

We are also pleased that many of the high street shops will be open during the event.

Any correspondence for those who wish to pass on their comments of support, ideas and feedback about the future of the event, can be emailed to info@whalleypickwick.org.uk for the attention of the committee.
