The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
CarFest: July 2016
Gates for Spectacular Saturday open at the earlier time of 10am, pedestrian access via Tattenhall Gate, at the lodge located at the junction of Bolesworth Road and Dark Lane.
The Great Festival Dash starts at 10.10am- cheer along those that are taking part in the fun run course around the fields of CarFest and laugh at the fancy dress!
More track performances scheduled starting at 10.30. Click here for more details about the cars you'll see — they'll be in variety of colours!
Staying true to the equestian legacy that is the Bolesworth International show, in the showjumping arena from 12.30 there will be showjumping classes and make sure you don't miss The Shetland Pony Grand National! These adorable ponies and riders are visiting again after featuring at the recent Liverpool Horse Show.
Live music kicks off to a rousing start at 4.25 on the Saturday afternoon, with the wonderful Brighouse Brass Band.
Some of the fantastic acts following them are Who's Next (5.50pm) and the Corrs (6.30). Look out, too, for KT Tunstall (a wonder with a loop-pedal) and the Proclaimers.
The Saturday night headliners are still to be confirmed ( the webteam have heard a hint that it will be announced Monday 25th.)
And, unlike the 14,000 campers, you can head off home at around 11pm to plump pillows and maybe breakfast in bed? Easy like a Sunday morning!
If we've whet your appetite, don't forget — tickets are still available for Friday — your very last chance to come along... Click here for details.
