Nantwich Jazz Festival 2019 1

Nantwich Police have paid tribute to Jazz Festival volunteers and revellers after just two arrests were made the five-day festival between April 18-22.

Tens of thousands of people were drawn to the festival thanks to the glorious weather.

There were scores of live music performances at more than 20 different venues across the five days.

Organisers believe it attracted a record number of visitors, and police worked with licencees, volunteers and groups such as Street pastors to make it as safe as possible.

Sgt Ian Bennett, head of the Nantwich Policing unit, said just two arrests were made – both on Easter Sunday.

One man was arrested for drunk and disorderly, and a second was arrested for drunk and disorderly and assaulting a police constable.

Sgt Bennett said: “Despite the unseasonal hot weather the number of arrests was lower than it has ever been.

“The general amount of incidents was very low amounting to single figures for the whole weekend.

“I would like to thank the Street Pastors who do a great job supporting this event and also Cheshire Fire and Rescue who gave safety advice to the venues regarding premises safety.”
