Cheshire Fest is back for 2017 with a family festival at Manchester Rugby Club in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport.
Taking place on the weekend of September 23 and 24, organisers are promising a huge family celebration and one last goodbye to the summer.
Festival organisers Phillip Osborne and Ben Harris have a line-up of emerging artists and high-profile tribute acts playing the Main Stage, as well as a large array of festival bars, street food stands and a diverse programme of family entertainment and activities.
The festival begins on Saturday, September 23, running from 11am to midnight when the #RememberWhen Main Stage programme will feature a host of tribute artists, including Take That tribute Want U Back, Dan East as Ed Sheeran, Be-Beyonce, MJ Mitch Mimms and Elvis. Also performing are local Cheshire artists Leon Meya and The Sound.
And if pop isn’t your thing, Sunday, September 24’s #FestivalAnthems programme runs from 11am to 11pm with the Antarctic Monkeys as well as Madchester favourites Oashish and The Absolute Stone Roses, Coldplay tribute Yellow, local lad Nolan and Leon Meya.
Visitors can also expect a wide array of festival bars like the Mini-Beer Fest tent with over 30 cask ales, craft beers and ciders from around the UK, the Prosecco & Champagne Bar, a Gin Garden, Cocktail Bar and Pimm’s Bus.
There will also be an International Street Food Village with over a dozen traders offering a mouth-watering taste of world cuisines.
For the family there will be a kids’ tent hosting performances by Princesses of the World with their acclaimed show Frozen Meets Beauty and the Beast, as well as a huge array of giant inflatable castles in Bouncy World and a selection of fairground rides.
Phillip Osborne said: “This programme has really been a labour of love and the aim has always been to bring something totally different and unique to our leafy corner of the north west.
“After launching our first festival in 2016, we’ve taken steps to bring on board a crack team of organisers this year – and the result is that we’ll have an amazing weekend on our hands in September that’s sure to last long in the memory.
“We’re all about big days out with family and friends and we think this new format, location and programme will offer just that.”
Tickets are now available at the Cheshire Fest 2017 website priced at £10 per day for adults (aged 16+) including a free drink and weekend tickets are £16. Children (aged 15 and under) go free.
