LEIGH Sports Village is appealing for businesses in the area to offer car parking spaces for the Lionel Richie concert this Summer.

The venue is hoping to team up with businesses, organisations or landowners within walking distance to be car parking partners for the American popstar's gig on Saturday, June 16.

There will be no charge for accreditation and the company will keep the £5 per car fee set by Leigh Sports Village.

The car parking spaces will be needed during the day and evening of the concert with the times yet to be confirmed.

Stewarding will need to be provided by the company as well.

The location of the organisation who receive accreditation will have their location advertised on the Leigh Sports Village website.
