We need your help to keep Lancashire Frack Free!

Do you remember Lancashire’s amazing victory in June, where we saw off fracking company Cuadrilla? Well now this victory is at risk and we need your help. Cuadrilla has ‘appealed’ against Lancashire’s decision to reject fracking. This means a public inquiry, held at Blackpool FC football stadium, will start on Tuesday 9 February and will run for approximately 20 days over 4 weeks. This will hear evidence on whether Lancashire County Council’s decision should be upheld or overturned by politicians in Westminster. We will be protesting outside to defend Lancashire’s decision and supporting the witnesses inside who will be registering their opposition to the application.

By Car:- Blackpool Football Club, Seasiders Way, BLACKPOOL FY1 6JJ,
There is a large pay and display car park immediately opposite the entrance to the venue.

Big Red Bus

Book your seat on the BIG RED BUS from Preston Railway Station to the venue

There will be a red double decker bus leaving Preston Railway station at 8.15am on the 9th Feb to take people to the National Anti Fracking Demo at Blackpool Football Club.

The bus will be returning to Preston from the demo, departing at 12pm.

If you would like to attend the demo you can book your seat here…….


Activities for the day 9th February – All Welcome!

  • 9am arrive and support witnesses inside the inquiry who are defending Lancashire’s decision.
  • 9.30 onwards hear from speakers
  • 11am take part in our creative photo-op to demonstrate Lancashire’s opposition to fracking

If Cuadrilla are allowed to frack in Lancashire the rest of the UK is put at even greater risk. The fracking industry need thousands of wells over hundreds of square miles to make a profit.

Community resistance is beating the fracking industry in the UK and solidarity between threatened communities is a vital part of the anti-fracking movement’s success.
