It’s Blackpool, but not as you know it …. Alfresco Family Productions host their fourth annual event on Sunday 25th May, but this time it’s looking bigger and better than ever. AFP is a million miles from the cliche noisy and quick thrill promenade entertainment. The one day family event is fun, creative, enjoyable and more importantly affordable.
For those with families they host many activities throughout the event for children and it’s all inclusive of one ticket price at £15. Offering arts and crafts, children’s theatre, sports and games, graffiti and dance workshops, entertainers and activities all safe and supervised. The ethos is that all children are equal to the adults, and money should not put restraints on any individual, curiosity leads to taking part and getting involved.
For the parents and adults without children Alfresco have arguably the best line up of bands, DJs and artists Blackpool has ever seen on the same line up and in one day. Alfresco are delighted to announce Factory Records legends “A Certain Ratio” as this year’s headliners, supported by Mr Scruff and MC Kwasi who also return to the main stage, while the mercurial Andrew Weatherall guests in the dance marquee. Also DJing will be Chris Duckenfield, Section 25, 2 Billion Beats, Luke Unabomber, Ben Pistor, Government and many more to be announced, the musical journey will be remarkable.
