'Audlem Party on the Park' was organised by ASET (Audlem Special Events Team, and supported by EPG Fire & Security (

The event was enjoyed by 1,500 people (a restricted capacity on advice from Cheshire East Council), who brought their picnics and danced into the night.

A representative from ASET said: "In the 22 years of our existence this has been the most challenging event we have ever organised with all the uncertainties around the pandemic, but it turned out to arguably the best ever Party on the Park. Everyone had a smile on their face and the whole atmosphere was electric all night -- we even had people rolling up at 3pm in the afternoon to begin their picnic. ASET is extremely indebted to our main sponsor EPG Fire and Security, PET Hire for all equipment, and to all our programme advertisers who had no hesitation in supporting our event. How can we improve? Easy -- a much bigger dancing area!"
