As a genuine community-based website, we welcome your comments, enquiries,
contributions and involvement ...as well as your praise and criticism,
where it's due!
Contributions will be reviewed for inclusion at the earliest opportunity.
FREE LISTINGS are added weekly. Usually.
News published and events submitted 48 hours before publication are included in the free fortnightly Virtual-Lancaster e-newsletter.
We endeavour to reply to all non-spam email but sometimes life gets in the way. (If we don't, it's not attitude, more a cry for help:-). If you start thinking we've lost your mail, just please re-send it.
The email address email@example.com goes to a robot that only manages newsletter subscriptions and discards everything else. Email messages sent to this address will not receive a reply.
SUBMIT AN EVENT TO OUR EVENTS CALENDAR
Every fortnightly Friday (or so) the Virtual Lancaster e-newsletter goes out with a list of links to the published calendar events for the next 17 days, showing date/title/venue/time.
Get your event in early.
It may take a couple of days for your event to appear.
Contact details: please include a phone number / email
(not for publication if not included in the story) in case there is
anything we need to check.
