It has been revealed on the official British Monarchy website that a Royal legend is visiting Pendle again on November 7th – the Duke of Kent.

He will be coming along to officially open the newly-refurbished manufacturing site of ACDC Lighting at the Innovating Works in Gisburn Road, Barrowford. The firm is now an international success, and won a Queen’s Award for export last year.

The Duke, who came to Nelson in 2009 to officially open the town’s ACE Centre, will also visit Fort Vale Engineering Ltd in Simonstone, which used to be in Nelson. And he will also officially open the new Burnley Fire Station.
