Held over 3 days the festival will once again include a fantastic line up to wow the crowds including chart-topping “Dancing In The Moonlight” band Toploader, 70s pop legends Showaddywaddy, singer-songwriter Emma Stevens, electro swing band Electric Swing Circus and Macclesfield-based rock duo The Virginmarys who sell out venues up and down the country.

This year the Festival will feature more folk and less rock in an effort to get back to our roots as a folk and boat festival. On Friday night the Main Stage ticketed concert will have a triple bill of Toploader, Emma Stevens and The Virginmarys, on Saturday night we couldn’t resist the opportunity to offer something special with household name Showaddywaddy promising great fun and admission is FREE, and Sunday’s line-up includes an eclectic treat of music-makers from Mexico, Russia, and Wigan.

The festival will also feature a host of entertainment at official fringe venues in and around Middlewich including The Big Lock, Boars Head Hotel, Cheshire Cheese, The Kinderton, The Kings Lock, The Narrowboat, Newton Brewery Inn and The White Bear.

Celebrating Middlewich’s canal heritage and natural assets, the floating market will be back in full force this year after the repair works to the Shropshire Union canal. Stretching from Town Bridge to The Big Lock the market is a real spectacle with brightly-coloured boats selling everything from cakes and crafts to ironwork and paintings.

£8 – £32 Only the Friday Night main stage event is chargable. The rest of the festival is FREE ENTRY.
