Barnaby Festival

  • Fri
    Arley Hall & Gardens, Northwich, Cheshire, CW9 6NA

    Drifts of snowdrops are one of the joys of this time of year and we have now opened The Grove and Woodland Walk so that you can admire what's there!

    After several years of planting and splitting of the drifts we are expecting our
    best ever display.

    Several paths have been created to help you navigate some of the areas left damp by recent weather, appropriate footwear and clothes are recommended.

    The Grove and Woodland Walk are open every day from 10am to 4pm. Entry to Arley is £5 for adults, £4.50 for concessions and £2 for children.

    The Gardener's Kitchen Cafe is also open.

    The Big Barnaby Update

    Weds 28 February, 7-8.30pm

    It’s hard to believe, but Barnaby’s now only a matter of months away  (June 15th to 24th 2018). To find out how the programme’s shaping up and how you can be involved,  just pop along to St Michael’s on Wednesday 28th Feb. If you can’t make it, don’t worry – there’ll be other meetings in March and April, or you can email to tell us you want to take part.

    Barnaby Parade 2018

    We’re getting the show on the road!

    The first Saturday of Barnaby is traditionally Parade day, and 2018 is no exception. If you’re involved with a local group, this is your chance to be a part of one of the best town parades in the country! Whether you’re a regular participant or a newcomer, it’s easy to get started. Parade organisers Macclesfield Community ArtSpace can offer ideas and inspiration around the Roots/Routes festival theme, and they also provide hands-on help with the practicalities. For more information and to register your group, visit the ArtSpace website.

    Your support

    Help make Barnaby 2018 happen

    Barnaby is one of Macclesfield’s greatest cultural assets, and we want to keep it that way; but Barnaby can’t happen without the town’s help. Every year it gets harder to find public money to cover the Festival’s costs, so if you, or your company or organisation, can offer Barnaby financial support we’d love to hear from you. You can email and find out how you can help keep Barnaby working for Macclesfield.
