THE resurrection of the Golcar Sing and a free shuttle bus are just two of the new features for this year’s Golcar Lily Day.

After the inaugaral 2007 Lily Day was hailed a massive success with hundreds of revellers packing the streets and cramming the venues, organisers have promised even bigger celebrations this time round.

The theme for 2008 is Do you remember? and a host of old souvenirs and photos will be on display, stirring up memories of past times and places.

Comedy nights start the proceedings in local pubs on Friday (May 9), with the opportunity for new local talent to have a go as well as the professional performers.

This year, a free bus will whisk punters around the various venues, giving them the chance to pack in an array of exciting entertainers from comedians to magicians to circus performers.

An opening ceremony on Saturday (May 10) will kick off with some familiar faces from the Colne Valley Museum and Golcar Band will provide the tunes.

Other highlights of the weekend will include, stalls, an art exhibition, storytelling in the library garden, a brewery open day with a special Lily Day beer, guided ginnel walks and children’s acting and comedy workshops.

And the Golcar Sing, the first since the 1960s will be on the Sunday (May 11) at 2.45pm in the playing fields by the junior school.

The weekend will be rounded off with a Golcar Lily Service at Providence Methodist Church at 6pm.
