Leyland's Music in the Park has secured the services of a brilliant host for the 80s music event in June.

He's worked with Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Tina Turner and Cliff Richard - presenting their shows at massive venues such as Wembley and Hyde Park.

He is one half of 'Pat & Mick', the dynamic duo consisting of Pat Sharp and... Mick Brown, of course!

Yes, Mick Brown will be the MC and host for Leyland's Music in the Park (LMITP) on Friday 19 June 2020.

This completely new event for South Ribble - which will feature Tony Hadley, T'Pau, Doctor and the Medics and Pat Sharp - takes place in Worden Park in Leyland, and tickets can be purchased at leylandsmusicinthepark.co.uk.

Tickets cost £25 (general admission), or £35 for a premium ticket which includes fast-track entry, artisan bar access, and upgraded toilets.

The event is a joint project between South Ribble Borough Council, the Leyland Town Team, and the Leyland Festival Committee.

Councillor Mick Titherington, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Health, Wellbeing and Leisure at South Ribble Borough Council, said: "We are absolutely over the moon to welcome Mick Brown to the LMITP line-up. With four fantastic acts already secured, a great venue and amazing festival-goers quickly snapping up the tickets, we really needed a top-class host to get the crowd in the mood and introduce the acts. Mick Brown has done it all: he's introduced Michael Jackson at Wembley, he's presented Lionel Richie at Hyde Park, so we are in safe hands. He's even released records of his own in aid of charity under the guise of 'Pat & Mick' - raising half a million pounds! Ticket sales for Leyland's Music in the Park are progressing really well but they are going quickly so buy yours today to avoid disappointment. This will be the highlight of the summer, we can't wait."

Martin Carlin, Chair of the Leyland Town Team and Chair of the Leyland Festival Committee, said: "We're really pleased that Mick Brown is joining us for Leyland's Music in the Park. It's fantastic that Leyland continues to attract the biggest names it can to perform at our events, and we're really happy with the line-up. Lots of people will know Mick from his TV and radio work, or from the vast array of events he's hosted. Mick is a perfect fir for our 80s music festival in Leyland and he will be a superb MC and host."
