Barrow-in-Furness welcomes the OVO Energy Tour of Britain for the start of Stage Six on Friday 7 September, and it promises to be a day to remember for local residents and race fans alike!

In addition to greeting the best-ever field assembled for the UK’s biggest annual sporting event, the town – home of stage partner BAE Systems – will be hosting its very own Fanzone.

Located on Dalton Road (between Abbey Road and High Street), the Fanzone falls along the route of the stage, and will also show every minute of the race’s ITV4 live coverage on its big screen.

There will also be cycling-related activities, including static bike racing, as well as free water for all children.

The Barrow Fanzone is open from 10:00 until 17:00 on Friday 6 September.
