Chorlton festivals

Postby Sarah_B » Thu Apr 10, 2014 6:17 pm

I saw an advert the other day for the 'Big Green Festival' well I think that was what it was called. It's at St Clement's Church on 26th April if my memory serves me right. I just thought I'd start this thread so if anybody hears of any festivals we could post them on here.

The kind of festival I like is one where there is outside music, ideally from a live band, and you have a few drinks whilst listening to the band(s).

There's the beer festival at St Clement's church in early July but apart from that I can't see any others?

Yeah, Chorlton Beer Festival would fit the bill I think.

Also Chorlton Green Food & Drink Festival, some Chorlton Arts Festival events & possibly even Manchester Vegan Fair. As long as you can put up with Vegan beer.

Always a terrible website. Never properly updated till May... still got graphics from last year... and a sidebar too wide for the design.

Terrible.

Why? I assume the web designers are being paid... for the six updates per year they currently do.
