Karen Young, the FNF organiser, added: “We have a great line-up: Circus in a Box were so wonderful last year that we’ve again booked them.

“Everyone loves their zany high-energy entertainment, so prepare yourselves for their fire eating, bubbleology, stilt walking and lots more throughout the town centre.

“Cheshire College South and West will provide two bands and one solo musician who will entertain us at the small stage at Love Lane area near Morrisons.

“Mr Jolly’s Victorian Street Magic will be in the town centre, with his entertainment for children and adults alike, whilst the Studio S dance group will perform on the green in front of St Mary’s Church.

“Finishing the FNF line-up in the town for the second year will be Pa Gozar Salsa Band in St Mary’s Church well.

“Should be a great evening for all the family.”

The BBQ competition will return on Festival Sunday next to the Broil King stall in Love Lane area.

All meat is given free by Cheerbrook Farm Shop, one of the Festival’s main sponsors, and instruction is available on the use of the high end BBQs.
