Arran Rigney, the co-ordinator of our Preston Support Group is co-running the wonderful Down by the Riverside Festival – a huge art, music and outdoor theatre festival based just outside of Lancaster - and has chosen Ataxia UK as the festival's charity partner.

Taking place Friday 1 and Saturday 2 June, this year’s fantastic family festival is back and bigger than ever.

The festival has something for everyone including live music, creative workshops and food/drink running throughout the event, with donkey rides and treasure hunts to keep the kids amused!

Ataxia UK is the festivals official charity partner of the year and if you purchase tickets to the event using the code ‘ATAXIAUK,’ we will receive £1.50 commission. We'll be there on Friday, and can’t wait to see you!

For more information about the festival, and to purchase tickets, please visit the official website and check out this video to hear more about the local Lancashire legend that'll be making an appearance...
