Last week we met as the team to set in motion the wheels that will lead to the biggest free Music & Arts event in South Cheshire - a big facet on the jewel that is the village.
The set dates are 23rd May through to 27th May — culminating in the Traditional Carnival Day. This will be the 13th Music & Arts Audlem Festival.
This year I have set up a team within a team that will concentrate on the Arts element so that extra attention can be devoted to this part of the long weekend.
Halls have been booked. The stages are being planned. The drive for sponsorship and support will begin early in 2013.
We already have many groups wanting to come here and to play as the success and reputation of the music that this wonderful village produces and arranges grows each and every year.
More updates as the months pass by — but be assured, we will present the best we can.
As part of obtaining the income needed to put on this huge free event, we are happy to hire out our superb marquees.
We have 8 x 4 metre and a 10 x 4 metre available for parties, etc. We erect and take down — all for just £80.
Just contact me on 07813 820157.
