Budding TV presenters are being invited to become stars of this year’s Lytham Festival.

For the first time in its history, Lytham Festival will be hosting its very own online TV channel – LF:TV - throughout the week-long event.

LF:TV will broadcast from venues throughout Lytham from August 1 to 7 keeping both festival and music fans up-to-date on all the latest backstage gossip and interviews with artists.

North West TV entertainment reporter Caroline Whitmore will host LF:TV but she needs a co-presenter - and that position is available to someone aged between 18 and 25. Could it be you?

All would-be presenters need to do is record a 30-second video clip of themselves saying why they are perfect for the role, post it to Facebook tagging Lytham Festival and send it to with their name, age and address by Monday, July 25.

Caroline, who has been ITV Granada Reports’ entertainment correspondent for 11 years, said: “I am thrilled to be hosting Lytham Festival’s first ever TV channel.

“The festival grows from strength to strength every year with this year’s line-up looking absolutely amazing. What I love about it is that it brings huge stars to Lytham every year alongside up-and-coming talent and classical recitals too.

“I really can’t wait for everything to kick-off on August 1 and to be working alongside a co-presenter who could potentially be the next big TV reporter.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for all would-be TV news and entertainment reporters and I look forward to seeing what talent is out there.”
