Football, fashion, music and fun is coming home to Blackburn

Published July 16, 2018 at 12:09

It’s been a glorious summer of football – and the party atmosphere is set to continue at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers will celebrate its diverse community at the first ever #OneRovers Festival on Saturday, July 28.

The event, which is supported by Blackburn with Darwen Council, kicks off at 1pm and culminates with a performance by 2017 BBC Music Ambassador Zack Knight.

There will also be international food stalls, a fashion show, fairground rides, face-painting and henna designs, as well as a strong sporting theme with stadium tours and football activities throughout the afternoon.

The event follows the successful #OneRovers Day in January and Rovers’ general manager, Lynsey Talbot, said:

The club recognise that we have a significant role to play in bringing the community together.

We have made great strides in celebrating diversity through the power of football and under the #OneRovers banner. The festival will be a multi-cultural event and will reinforce our position at the heart of the community.

The festival will be the first high-profile event held by Rovers since it was named the English Football League Family Club of the Year  in April.

Blackburn with Darwen Council Leader Mohammed Khan, added:

Football is great at bringing people together as the brilliant support for England at the World Cup proved.

This will be a fantastic fun event for all the family and I would urge people to go along and show the same great support for their local team.

General tickets cost £5, under 12s free with a paying adult. Front of stage tickets for Zack Knight are £10.

Tickets are available from 01254 372000 (select option 2) or the club’s  Roverstore.
