Chadkirk Festival 2011

What a weekend !! Who could have guessed after six weeks of bad and mixed weather, we could be so lucky as to get two glorious days for the Chadkirk Festival.

There was more than ever for families to see and do, with street entertainers, basket weaving, exotic dancers, worm charming as well as all the usual stalls and bands.

The Trust was there as usual in all it's glory. We had two stalls, a bran tub and Norman the Knight, who the mayor could not resist shooting an arrow at.

The costumes were varied too, with Georgian, Medieval, Victorian, Puritan and of course the Town Crier.

Thanks to the Friends of Chadkirk and Stockport Council for running this popular event.
