Audlem has enjoyed a fantastic six nights and four days of The Audlem Music & Arts Festival plus a revitalised Carnival.
Looking back, it amazes all who live here, or come to Audlem to enjoy these events, how a small village can make events on this scale happen — and pull it off in style:
- Over eighty events for the Festival with an exciting programme including something to suit all tastes
- A packed playing field for the Carnival and the return of the Parade
- And it's all free — there's nothing to rival it for many a mile
- Sound engineers and technicians on every stage throughout the Festival
- Loads of local musical talent as well as bands, often from afar, that keep coming back and having a ball
- The Festival and Carnival committees who planned and worked tirelessly for months to make it all happen
- The volunteers who help make it go so well
- The pub barstaff that kept smiling when they must have been shattered
- The businesses and organisations that fund such a fabulous event through advertising, sponsorship and donations
- And, of course, the audiences who make it all worthwhile.
We are sure everyone who enjoyed themselves over the past days will join Audlem Online in saying a great big "Thank You" to all concerned.
There were so many highlights:
- bands and singers that surprised us all and had everyone smiling
- bands that somehow managed to perform superbly in Sunday's cold and rain
- exhibitions that showed off so much local talent
- and new ideas like the Poetry Slam and the Speakeasy that added even more to a great event.
So, please, to everyone involved, take a bow and enjoy the applause — you thoroughly deserve it. You did Audlem proud!
