PUBLISHED: 00:00 19 December 2017 | UPDATED: 15:34 08 April 2020
It’s been an action packed year in Lancashire, how much of it can you remember?
We’ve certainly had a busy 2017 at Lancashire Life and we know you have had an eventful year too. The year has been filled with major celebrations, anniversaries and landmarks and it has been huge fun to document what everyone has been doing in our wonderful county. If you’ve been regular visitor to our website, then this quiz shouldn’t pose any problems for you.
We celebrated our 70th anniversary this year and to mark it, we launched an ambitious project to tell a History of Lancashire in 70 objects. We worked with museums, galleries and heritage centres across the county to find objects which reveal our county’s rich and varied past.
The year got off to a colourful start when our readers shared their photos of snowdrops, bluebells and daffodils from across the county in our reader photo gallery, we look forward to seeing more of those in 2018.
The summer was filled with festivals of all types and descriptions; there was a Festival of Making centred around arts and crafts, numerous food festivals including the Clitheroe Food Festival and a host of top music festivals across the county that included a surprise appearance by Will Smith.
Autumn was award season for us, in October we hosted our annual Food and Drink Awards at Mercure Dunkenhalgh and we also announced the winner of our Lancashire Life Reader photo competition in partnership with Wilkinsons Cameras; Ruth Burgess won top prize with her shot of Isthmus Bay in Derwentater.
In the tail end of the year we helped you celebrate festive fun across the county. We took a look at the ever popular Whalley Pickwick Festival and we explored why Lancaster has become one of the top destinations for Christmas in the county.
Our website was viewed over a million times in 2017 and we look forward to seeing even more of you pay us a visit in 2018.
Have a great new year.
