Thousands of people enjoyed a weekend of live performances as the return of the popular Chorley Live was hailed a huge success.

There were more than 200 performances at 25 venues on Friday and Saturday, including on an outdoor stage on Fazakerley Street.

The event, organised by Chorley Council and the Creative Network, saw a huge variety of performers playing at cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops.

And initial estimates suggest more than 5,000 people attended, with some travelling from as far away as London, the Midlands and Leeds.
