Darwen Gala

Venue: Bold Venture Park, Darwen

Darwen Gala is your very last chance to get your £1 raffle ticket to be in with a chance of winning a brand new Citroen DS3! The winning ticket will be drawn at 3-3.30pm at the hospice stall by former World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty. It could be you!

There will also be the hospice's big tombola, 3 goes for £1 with some great prizes and all proceeds go to the hospice.
We're looking to make the 49th Darwen Gala the biggest and best one yet! 
Last year's Gala saw more than 5000 visitors from far and wide descending on the town.
 
Stage and arena entertainment for 2014 includes the Owls & Birds of Prey Roadshow and a jaw-dropping appearance by The Mighty Smith! Adrian Smith, 5th in the World's Strongest Man and three times winner of UK's Strongest Man presents a show geared for family fun with visual humour and audience participation.
The parade leaves Anchor car park at 12.30pm and arrives at Gala on Borough Road at in time for the official opening at 1.30pm by the borough’s mayor and also the mayor of Darwen Town Council.  

To volunteer on the hospice tombola or to help with selling car raffle tickets please call Kim on 01254 733412.
