Accrington Town Square


The vibrant town of Accrington lies in Hyndburn in the heart of Pennine Lancashire. It is East Lancashire’s best shopping district with fabulous independent boutiques, 21st century Arndale Shopping Centre and 19th century Victoria Market Hall, a grand Victorian building where market traders sell fresh Lancashire produce.

Accrington has been lucky enough to be the recipient of Heritage Lottery Funding which has provided us with a beautiful Town Square, which is playing host to over a hundred events over the next 3 years. These events range from small fete’s promoting local charities, to family fun days, live theatre, brass band concerts and food festivals. We are also hosting large events such as a hugely popular soap box challenge and family quiz and picnic day.
