NORTHWICH CARNIVAL 1963 Photo: Angela Jones/ Northwich & Surrounding Area Past & Present
Many Middlewich people travelled to Northwich Memorial Hall in the 1960s for appearances by
popular groups of the day including Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Searchers and The Beatles who had a special affinity with Northwich and opened the town's Carnival fifty years ago this summer.
Here's a link to a new Facebook group featuring photographs of Northwich and surrounding area over the years. Middlewich is well represented, as are other towns and villages in Cheshire, but the main focus is on Northwich.
Those of us who lived in Middlewich but went to school in Northwich enjoyed the best of both worlds.
