journey - Nantwich Food and Drink Festival crowds

Visitors to the Nantwich Food Festival are being urged to plan their journey to the event this weekend.

More than 30,000 people are expected to visit the festival starting tomorrow (September 2) until Sunday (September 4).

But Cheshire East highways are warning that traffic delays are anticipated.

Park-and-ride facilities will be available at Nantwich Town Football Club, Barony Park and Brine Leas School.

Visitors are being advised to use public transport if possible to travel to and from the festival.

Improvements to upgrade the traffic lights at the High Street/Welsh Row junction to improve efficiency are continuing, following a delay to works on site.

Cheshire East Council says it has instructed Barratt Homes doing the work to manually control traffic from 7am–9pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to minimise impact on event goers.

During this period, Welsh Row will be closed to improve capacity at the junction and reduce waiting times.

  1. Park and ride and public transport hasn’t stopped dangerous double parking down Nantwich’s side streets.
