The organisers of one of the newest festivals in Furness are on the lookout for new sponsors ahead of its second year.

The Coast Road Festival at Aldingham Fields near Barrow and Ulverston made its debut in July 2022, but was unable to take place last year.

With work long been carried out to bring the event back, the organisers are now hopeful that sponsors will step forward to make the dream a reality.

They said: "We're on the lookout for enthusiastic sponsors to join us on this incredible journey, helping to make Coast Roads Festival an unforgettable experience, where the aim is not just entertainment, but also fostering connections within our community.

"Whether you're an individual, small business, a local enterprise, or a larger company with a heart for community engagement, we have sponsorship packages tailored to suit your needs and showcase your commitment to culture and creativity."

The festival is a two-day contemporary music and arts event that celebrates a range of established and emergent local talent, whilst also attracting nationally and internationally renowned artists to the area.

The aim of the festival is to inspire 'futures generations to enjoy the power and beauty of music and the arts'.

In 2022, legendary indie band The Coral signed up to play on the Main Stage, along with Mercury Prize-nominated Everything Everything.

Seven separate stages were set up on the site, with local schools and charities such as Mind, Samaritans and Drop Zone involved at the Cumbria Unity Festival area.

The event is organised by Barrow-based community art project The Lock In, who have been behind other standout experiences such as a block party outside Barrow Town Hall in August last year.
