It all starts tomorrow night, the best free Festival for many, many miles — The Audlem Music & Arts Festival.
Music to suit all tastes, art, poetry — great venues, great performers and a great atmosphere.
Six nights and five days of fabulous entertainment, and all here in Audlem. Fingers are crossed for a warm and sunny weekend and Bank Holidays Monday and Tuesday.
Jim Kirkpatrick, Elly Kingdon, BBC favourite band in 2011 and regulars at this festival, the reads, Twin Frets, Emma Pursehouse, Sarah Miller as well as breaking bands:
HMV's 2012 Next Big Thing, The Dunwells, Sound of the Sirens, local nu folk the Folkwits, The Wash, Manchester's modern alarms., Jazz Dawgs, legends such as the likes of Dave Day & Dan Machin, The Boat Band, Heavy Weather & Blue Café to name a few.
It's also rumoured that appearances from members of bands such as Elbow, The Doves and I am Kloot may also attend alongside the likes of Darren Poyzer, The Spare Ribs, Garron Frith and the ever popular Rainband.
With musicians, poets, actors, exhibitors, the Audlem Carnival, this is a truly great five days that costs you no more than the effort to get here, but please keep it to yourselves!
