St James' Church is a wonderful venue tonight, along with Audlem's three pubs, for this evening's Festival programme.
This is what's on offer on the second evening of the Audlem Festival — Friday 1st June:
7:00pm — Classical Plus South Cheshire Youth Sinfonia at St James Church
A classical flavour from the South Cheshire Youth Sinfonia and guests.
8:00pm — Alex Hulme at the Lord Combermere
Inspired by the likes of Nick Drake & Foy Vance. With realtime multilayered looping of guitars and vocals (which have to be seen to be believed), Alex creates immediate pop songs with catchy melodies and rich folk guitar
9:00pm — The Folkwits at the Bridge Inn
The Folkwits have been delighting audiences with their own brand of Nu-Folk music. The Audlem based duo are influenced by Eva Cassidy, Richard Thompson, Fairport Convention & Laura Marling...a must see this year
9:30pm — Whiskyhead at the Shroppie Fly
Formed in 2009, WhiskeyHead is one of the most popular lively & hardworking bands with a passion for live performance
9:30pm — Rook & the Ravens at the Lord Combermere
Alternative rock that bristles with dark intent amidst a technicolor landscape populated by tough guitar pop, shiny harmonies & several stories of keyboards built on an unwavering rhythm foundation.

On Saturday and Sunday there's a packed programme and then the Festival runs right through Bank Holidays Monday and Tuesday.
And on Monday, it's also the Audlem Carnival with the parade and then a packed Playing Field with events such as Audlem's Answer to Crufts and, of course, the Funfair.
