The Clayton Food and Drink Festival is still set to go ahead this summer after being postponed.
The annual event is usually held over the May Bank Holiday weekend, but oganisers say it will now go ahead later in the summer.
The festival was first held in 2013 and hailed a success with hundreds of people attending, boosting local businesses and raising around £500 for charity.
Organiser John Hodgkiss, who runs the Old England Forever pub off Barnes Square, said it will now be run in the summer following heavy rain last year.
He said: “We have briefly discussed it but we aren’t 100 per cent sure when it will be, possibly June or July at the moment.
“Last year the weather was dreadful and I had to wait so long for permission from the council that I lost a lot of potential stall holders.
“The weather absolutely poured it down solidly for both days last year, but we still managed to raise a reasonable amount of money for charity but not as much as the year before.
“We will be hoping for better weather in the summer. To have it in May is risking it but hopefully it should be okay later in the summer.”
Over the past two years hundreds of pounds have been raised for East Lancashire Hospice, Derian House and Clayton Boxing Club.
John said: “We want to do something along the same lines but make it a bit different as you can’t keep the same format.”
