The Nantwich Food Festival has great entertainment for all age groups over the Festival weekend 30th & 31st August and 1st September.
Music and entertainment make the Festival unique, and of course, the Festival and all entertainments are free to enter!
The live music creates such a vibrant Festival atmosphere; Cat Radio will again host both live music stages, and there is music on the church green.
Festival Music Manager, Gary Johnson has organized fabulous music; he says “ We thank our Headline Music Stage Sponsor, The Vine @ Bowling Green for their support; details of the Love Lane main stage sponsor are to be confirmed.
Acclaimed local musicians, Baxter, Callum Joseph Wright, Oli Ng and Jim Kirkpatrick all have loyal bands of followers because of their unique talents. While the popular Italian singers: Salvatore Tuzze and Dean Lanza – the grandson of Mario Lanza no less! – are back for a 2nd year on the Bowling Green stage, again sponsored by Romazzino Italian Restaurant. The Love Lane stage will highlight Tokyo Misfires, the svelte vocals of Almaz and rockin trio Stone Cold Soberish.”
The Festival will have street entertainment for all ages starting with the Friday Night Fun (FNF) from 4.30pm onwards. Karen Young, the FNF organiser says “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”.
Not forgetting Festival competitions: the popular BBQ competition will return on Festival Sunday next to the Broil King stall in Love Lane area. This competition is always popular, places are limited, enter now!
All meat is given free of charge by Cheerbrook Farm Shop, one of the Festival’s main sponsors, and instruction is available on the use of the high end BBQs. The winner will need to wow the judges with creative seasoning and perfect cooking.
The prize is an amazing Broil King BBQ.
