The event will take place at Padiham Town Hall on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 28th to 30th.

Now in its 13th year, hundreds of visitors are expected to flock to the ballroom in the town hall for the exhibition. Visits by pupils from local primary schools will take place on the Monday but the exhibition will still be open to the public that day.

It will run from 10am to 4pm each day and will also feature other memorabilia donated by local people.
