The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Sandstone Ridge Festival: February 2019
The Sandstone Ridge Festival has announced its programme for this May and it is bigger and better than ever. Spread over six villages over four days, the festival of Art and Literature has become a firm favourite in Cheshire and runs this year from 16th to the 19th May.
Appearances by internationally known writers, Jimmy McGovern and Jasper Winn, among others and the yet unnamed speakers at the Oldie Magazine Lunch at Cholmondeley Castle on Friday lunchtime will ensure interesting and lively entertainment, as will a talk by Liverpool Locations about their involvement with films and TV programmes from Harry Potter to Peaky Blinders in Malpas.
There's a chance for everyone to join in with the massed choirs for Songs of Summer at Bunbury Church and the art exhibition will be at the Burwardsley Art Hub again where we can enjoy over twenty local artists displayed in this beautiful setting. Folk band, Merry Hell, will be giving their multi award winning show at Tattenhall on Friday and local band, Brass Monkeys will be performing the following night in Malpas.
On the final Sunday evening some young opera singers from London will be presenting 'A Beginners Guide to Opera' in St Alban's Church with the help of pupils from the Park School.
There are many talks and demonstrations on canals, gardening, writing, and horses in and around the villages in thirteen venues.
