Lancaster Festa Italia
Lancaster BID is once again bringing a flavour of Italy to Lancaster.
Following the success of the inaugural event last year, Lancaster Festa Italia makes a welcome return on Sunday 8th September 2019. This year the event is planned to be enhanced with MORE Italian stalls, MORE Italian Supercars and bikes and a Fringe event on Saturday 7th September across the city’s late night economy.
Lancaster Festa Italia will showcase a range of entertainment. You’ll be able to watch Voce, The Luca Brasi Four on the Melodrome Stage in Market Square. This entertainment will be complemented by Italian dancing from Turning Point and beware of the Gladiators roaming the city.
There will also be roaming street entertainment for you to enjoy, including our fantastico singing waiters along with the Gladiators. For you motor enthusiasts, the Festa will also be hosting vehicle displays including Ducati, Lamborghini and Ferrari!
Running again will be the ‘Bring On The Brollies’ trail to celebrate the Umbrella Canopy that will go up on New Street from Mid-July. The trail will start from the 2nd August and guides participants around Lancaster, counting the number of brollies they can find along the way. Each time you find a ‘Brolly Bonus’ sticker, you can go in the business and claim your treat. This trail will be running from August through to the Festa Italia so there is plenty of time to claim your treats and explore the city.
What is the perfect way to finish your Italian day? By indulging yourself more in Italian culture of course. You can add to your fabulous day of Italian fun by watching a screening of The Metropolitan Opera production of Aida at The Dukes Theatre or listening to some splendid opera at the Shire Hall of Lancaster Castle. We think it’s the perfect way to finish off your Italian adventure!
