Two-day music and arts festival Liskeard Live set to draw in the crowds
LISKEARD is set to be filled with festival cheer this weekend as musicians, entertainers and performers take to the streets during the town's inaugural music and arts festival.
Organised by the Liskeard Town Team, the group which scooped £100,000 of government cash to help revitalise the high street under the Portas' Pilot scheme, Liskeard Live kicks off this Friday with a jazz supper at the Lord Eliot Hotel.
A film showing of the Great Gatsby will be held at the Liskerrett Centre on Friday evening.
