Audiences can look forward to songs from the shows, a journey through the history of swing and a special screening of Willy Russell’s Educating Rita at the festival, now in its 14th year.

Groups including the famous Wingates Brass Band will take to the stage, there will be a showcase of Prescot's young talent and musicians will gather to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One.

Organisers promise a festival that is both accessible and affordable.

“A Cottom’s hot pot supper is included in the opening night ticket price,” said artistic director Dr Robert Howard.

“Come along to our film, and tuck into a complimentary choc ice. Organ recital guests will be treated to wine and nibbles, and audiences for Wingates Brass Band can enjoy a traditional pasty in the interval.

“It’s about making every festival experience that little bit more special and, of course, providing value for money. Music and food in a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere make for a really memorable community occasion.”

The festival runs from Friday 15 to Sunday June 24.

Tickets are on sale at Poco Coffee on 30 Eccleston Street or online at the official website, www.prescotfestival.co.uk
