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.
