A fun festival of words for all the family is set to once again return to Chorley, and local authors and story tellers are being sought to get involved.

‘What’s Your Story, Chorley?’, will be back in Chorley Town Centre for its fifth year on 30 March 2019 with its wide variety of fun engaging activities, and its organisers, including Chorley Council, are looking for people who would like to part of the popular word festival.

The activities on the day will include:

* Storytelling

* Meet the author events

* A chance to develop writing skills

* Poetry reading

* Dramatic presentations

* Musical performances

* Meeting like-minded people

* Learn about writing groups in the local area

* The highly popular book bench trail

Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council said: “We’re delighted that each year this festival of words proves more and more popular with people – those taking part as contributors and those coming along to enjoy the event.

“The event is growing all the time and so we’re now on the hunt for more authors and story tellers to get involved and come along on the day to keep visitors and shoppers of all ages spellbound and entertained.

“It’s all about making things happen in the town centre to get people to visit Chorley and enjoy being in the town centre as well as giving people the opportunity to enjoy something they may not usually get chance to see.

“This event just gets better each year and once again we’ve got some exciting authors, writers and story tellers lined up to take part, but we are still on the lookout for more.

“We’d love to hear from local people with a story to share. This is a chance for them to showcase their craft in a range of venues in the town centre opening up a whole new audience for them. This is an event with something for everyone – whether you are young, not-so-young, male or female.”
