Rove by Spot On, Lancashire's Rural Touring Theatre
Welcome to Freckleton
The Village of Flower & Music
Freckleton is located in the Fylde, Lancashire, England, UK, just north of the river Ribble. It is one of the oldest Fylde villages. Historically, Freckleton’s main industry is agriculture but there was a time when it was a sea port with boat building and sail making.
The Freckleton web site is a showcase for the village. It provides information about local history, the shops, pubs, restaurants, council, businesses, facilities, services and amenities that are available locally.
There are also pictures from around the village as well as information about the Lancashire Coastal Way and links to everything we can find of relevance to Freckletonians.
Please use the menu at the top of the page to navigate the site.

Energy costs - 21.02.16
It's 'that time again' where we here at 'Freckweb Towers' review our gas and electric costs. This year it is definitely worth considering splitting your gas and electric to different companies. The 'Dual Fuel' discount no longer makes up for the difference in price. Taking separate gas and electic this year is £60 cheaper than the best dual fuel offer we can find.
Freckleton Library - April/May
Despite the worry and uncertainty about the future of the library, it's 'business as usual' and the staff remain pleasant and helpful as always.
Police Community Support Officer Surgery. - Normally, every 2nd Monday of the month from 2:00-3.00pm. Pop in to meet your local PCSO. Please note that the May surgery will be on Thursday 12 May, i.e. same time and place, but on a Thursday instead of a Monday.
'Rove' - Wednesday 4th May
This show is a piece of studio theatre - it doesn't have a set or 'costumes' as such. It's more of a storytelling event with accompanying music.
The show is about the family stories we carry with us - sometimes those stories are true, sometimes they are myths made up of snippets from different family members until eventually no one knows what is true and what is false. Fergus Evans tells us the story of how he came to have his name, muddled up with how his grandparents met and eventually married and mixed with some tales about his mother and father.
It makes the audience think about their family stories and the strange myths that every family carries with them. The performance begins at 6.30pm on 4th May and should last about an hour with refreshments served afterwards which will give people time to have a chat and a discussion with Fergus if they wish to.
Tickets cost £4 if bought in advance and £6 on the day of the performance. We are looking forward to holding this event and do hope you'll be able to join us! Please be aware that the event is mainly suitable for adults and older children. <Poster>
