The event will showcase moments in Padiham’s history captured on camera alongside a range of other memorabilia. Old school pictures along with those of sports events and people going about their daily business will feature at the display, now in its seventh year.

Organised by Mrs Ann Clark and Padiham Archive Group, the exhibition, which charts more than 100 years of history, has proved popular, with hundreds of current and former residents travelling from across the county to catch a glimpse of bygone days.
