For many years, many people have reserved the last weekend in July for our annual Chadkirk Festival.Then in 2016, the re-opening of Bramhall Hall meant that the Festival couldn’t happen as in previous years. Instead Friend of Chadkirk organised a smaller event while we all hoped for a return to the full festival.However, this year I understand that funding/staffing issues have meant that Stockport MBC is unable to offer the support to enable the kind of Festival we have come to know and love. Nevertheless the Friends of Chadkirk are an adaptable bunch and they have a different kind of day for your delectation!
Yes, it’s on a smaller scale, though now there’s free admissions as well as free car parking. It will have some of the hallmarks of the bigger festival: music and stalls, refreshments and games, crafts and treats. As usual, it offers an afternoon in a delightful space, milling and chatting with other fine folk in a friendly setting.
Proceeds from the Friends stalls will add to their funds and so help Chadkirk Chapel and Country Park thrive and continue to offer a place for all to enjoy. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 29th July 1-4pm.
It’s on Saturday 29th July 2017 from 12 noon onwards, presented and organised by the Friends of Chadkirk.
The Well Dressing Blessing will take place at 1pm.
Stockport Silver Band will be giving performances at 2pm and 3pm.
