The prestigious awards recognise and celebrate the very best that Lancashire has to offer in terms of all aspects of the tourism sector.

Myerscough’s Open Day & Country Fair was celebrated as a finalist in the category of Small Event of the Year (up to 15,000 visitors), as the stars of Lancashire tourism and hospitality shone in an event at the iconic King George’s Hall in Blackburn.

2023 was another bumper year for the Myerscough College Open Day & Country Fair, as thousands of people were welcomed to the College’s main Bilsborrow campus to enjoy the excellent weather and the hundreds of attractions on offer, in the first event of its kind held since 2019.

The College's biggest event of the year is now well established as one of the best days out in Lancashire's outdoor events calendar. An action-packed family fun day out, the event includes a large array of demonstrations, shows and interactive activities from the College’s many diverse subject areas as well as food, drink and entertainment. Prospective students also get the chance to see the beautiful campus at its best and chat with tutors and staff from each area.

Vikki Harris, Marketing and Partnerships Director of Marketing Lancashire opened the event, and said: “It is businesses like yours, the very best in the Lancashire, that can help us to do this by continuing to  provide exceptional and distinctive experiences for your guests.”

“There is absolutely no shortage of pride, passion and ambition in this county, and we are always so impressed by the achievements of Lancashire’s business community and so very proud to champion all aspects of living, working and investing in Lancashire.”
