Altrincham & District Festival is to be revamped for 2018 and beyond, 40 years after its establishment in 1977, the Queen’s Silver Jubilee year.  The management team, which is made up entirely of volunteers, has already taken two steps towards the revamp. One has been to register a new Community Interest Company (Altrincham & District Festival CIC) - an organisational format which helps to ensure transparency and accountability to the community.  The other is to launch an online survey ( where the local people can begin to shape the future by offering suggestions, ideas and expressing an interest in becoming more closely involved. The survey closes on February 28th.


Neil Taylor, one of the organisation’s directors said, “Our survey is on our website Your Festival, the name of which reflects how the event serves the entire community, so we naturally welcome more involvement from individuals and organisations.  We live in a rapidly changing world and are keen to keep delivering what people want.  For 40 years, the Festival has provided fun and free entertainment, an opportunity to showcase local talent, to build lasting bonds, and raise profile and awareness. However, we recognise the importance of remaining inclusive and up-to-date. We are really looking forward to analysing responses from the public and engaging new people in the future of this event.”


Former Festival Chairman, Councillor Tony Fishwick, retired from the management team last year having contributed for 27 years.  He was thanked by the team for his years of service and presented with an engraved glass tankard and flowers. “There was once a day when I looked at Beech Fields and saw nothing but grass”, he admitted.  “But I was determined to see the expanse filled with entertainment for all and I feel we have done that over the years.  While I will always support Altrincham Festival, the time has come for me to have a rest so I wish the team every success with the revamp.”
