This time the event will run even longer and organisers are hoping to attract more than the 25,000 people who attended the event in May.

The Festival will be staged on Harry Potts Way and will feature Christmas food and market stalls.

Burnkey FC’s commercial director Anthony Fairclough said that the Winter festival would have something for all ages.

“We are planning on a real Christmas atmosphere with a host of entertainment ranging from a bandstand performance of Disney’s Frozen to special guest appearances by stars from Britain’s Got Talent.

“Christmas choirs, brass bands and a Santa’s Grotto will create a fantastic vibe and we are hoping that as many residents will come along and support the festival”, he said.

Other attractions will include real reindeers and face painting and the welcome return of performers Granny Turismo.

The Winter festival is being held to co-incide with Burnley’s home match with Charlton, but the event will start at 10 a.m. and last into the evening.

“We really hope the whole area will join us to make the event a massive success,” added Anthony.
