MIDDLEWICH FAB FESTIVAL WELCOMES BACK OLD FAVOURITES!

Plans are forging ahead for this year's MIDDLEWICH FAB FESTIVAL, the Middlewich event which, as the Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival, first propelled the town into the limelight back in 1990.
Over the years our town has seen hundreds of bands, dancers, theatre performers and members of the boating fraternity and their many and varied boats and associated  attractions. A festival with such a long and colourful history is bound to make many friends and this year some old favourites are back to join in the fun...
