MILLOM’s economy has benefited by more than £4000 as a result of last month’s two-day Norman Nicholson Festival.

Organiser analysers Norman Nicholson Society show well over £3000 was spent by people who attended the festival on overnight accommodation and meals.

Venue hire and bar takings at the Clock Tower and the Beggar’s Theatre take the estimated figure to more than £4000.

Chair, Charlie Lambert said: “The economic impact will have been much higher than £4000.”
