Altrincham’s Harfest Is This Weekend!
We are promoting this because there is no Harfest page on facebook so when you search on Facebook you don’t get anything! As it is arguably THE event of the year we thought we would try and help!
THE MAIN EVENTS ARE FREE – YOU DO NOT NEED TO BOOK TABLES TO SEE THE MAIN STAGE ON CENTRAL WAY Or SHAW’S RD!
The main stage on Central Way will feature Radio 6 DJ and Ex-Mark & Lard (Radio 1) Mark Radcliffe who will be performing with Galleon Blast at 12.30 on Saturday. Also, that day are Little Belters & The Music Place Choir doing Manchester Anthems at 4.15pm with Clint Boon on organ and Bez from The Happy Mondays dancing! The evening closes with Baked A La Ska!
The second stage on Shaw’s Rd features The Blackberry Fold and Harriett Dignall.
There are also activities in and around Alty market and at The Cinnamon Club so check it all out in the poster below. and on the various facebook pages.
HARFEST 2018 – 22nd & 23rd September
There will be two FREE sound stages will with all proceeds from the paid events going to www.reverserett.org.uk supporting research into reversing the rare neurological disorder that affects only girls – Rett Syndrome.
This is the lineup for the FREE Events which take place on Central Way and around the market:
Harfest 2018 is a veritable feast of family laden events – alongside the music, there are loads for kids and friends and families to do but you need to book to avoid tears of disappointment on the day…there are now only limited places only left on the workshops to make musical instruments, floral headbands and bread baking…so bag those places now!
It’s not too late to enter the Great Alty Bake off and pit your baking skills against your fellow aspiring cakey bakers, there are 3 categories covering 3 different age groups with three types of bake…remember 3 is a magic number…..
There are about 30 tickets left for Clint Boon’s family Friday night Funk Disco with Frisco Crabb and the Atlantic Frantics at Bowdon’s Cinnamon Club from Friday at 5.00pm with Honest Crust serving up their legendary sourdough pizza…make sure you don’t miss out!
For those of a more cerebral nature, ticket availability is now strictly limited to see Joy Division/New Order’s Stephen Morris in conversation with Radio 6 Music’s Mary-Anne Hobbs who will be joined by the designer of the Haçienda, Ben Kelly.
Also it’s not too late to bag the last few remaining tickets to see Happy Monday’s Bez and Inspiral’s Clint Boon’s DJ set at our Saturday night’s Drove of DJ’s at Bowdon’s Cinnamon Club, along with Hacienda stalwarts Elliot Eastwick and the 5th Man, Bobby Langley!
