A cheeky request to join a DJ on stage at the feted Beat Herder festival when he was just 13 was a good indicator of what career path Finley Barrow would follow.

And, six years later at the age of 19, Finley has hosted four sell out house nights and is counting down to a major event at the end of this month after managing to book a worldwide international DJ. Again he is expecting that to be a sell out when George Smeddles plays at the Vista Cielo restaurant in Clitheroe on Bank Holiday Sunday, May 26th.

Finley, of Simonstone, said: “We are flipping a restaurant into a club with permission from the owner who invited us to do this after he saw how successful our events are. The venue holds up to 500 people and with all the hype around it due it being such a big booking people are coming from Bolton and other areas that we never thought we could reach. This is our first big wild stone achieved, now we are looking up to the future knowing the sky is our limit.”
