<![CDATA[Preston Bus News]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news.html <![CDATA[Bank Holiday weekend trip to Skipton!]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news/BankHolidayweekendtriptoSkipton_683.html Stuck for things to do over the long Bank Holiday Weekend?

Fancy a trip out of Preston? Head to Skipton on the 280/X80. The annual Skipton Waterway Festival takes place this weekend, around Skipton and on the Canal Basin (off Coach Street).

Dozens of narrowboats and other craft will line the Basin and the surrounding towpaths - all themed to help celebrate the Canal's landmark anniversary - and there will be a full programme of entertainment throughout each of the three days.

The event runs over the whole weekend and will be opened by the Mayor of Skipton.

To get to Skipton take advantage of our £6.80 Gold EasiDay ticket (£4.50 for children) or our £12.00 Gold Family EasiDay (up to 2 adults plus up to 3 children). And if you have a NoWcard, remember - you travel free all weekend and Bank Holiday

Entry to the Festival is FREE.



Ribble Valley International Jazz Festival

If Jazz is more your style, head to Clitheroe for the Ribble Valley International Jazz Fest, which starts on Thursday 3rd May, and runs until Monday 7th. For perfomance details see the website.
