    The regions most prestigious agricultural event – The Royal Cheshire County Show – is back with a jam-packed summertime Show held to celebrate the very best of rural Cheshire.

    The Cheshire Show, held annually at Clay House Farm in Knutsford, is a family-friendly event organised by The Cheshire Agricultural Society to celebrate the agricultural heritage ingrained within the local community. The Show promises ticket holders a great day out in the Cheshire countryside, with an amazing line-up of exhibitions, demonstrations and new, exhilarating performances.

    The Show plays host to hundreds of livestock classes, including cattle, sheep, goats and pigs, as they all compete for the many coveted trophies available.

    Show Director of the Cheshire Agricultural Society CIO, Rob Davenport comments; “The Cheshire Show is the county’s largest agricultural event, held to pioneer Cheshire’s farming heritage, culinary talent and fantastic produce.

    Town Hall, Market Place, Macclesfield & Macclesfield Library, Jordangate, Macclesfield

    Saturday June 22nd sees the 4th MACC-POW! Macclesfield’s celebration of comics – returning to the Town Hall in Macclesfield – where creators from all around the world will be offering visiting comic book fans a great day celebrating comic art.

    This year will be the fourth ad the biggest one yet. In addition to a feast of funny book creators such as returning heroes Lew Stringer, Tor Freeman, Emmeline Pidgen and David Leach, MACC-POW! will welcome new names such as Hannah Berry (crowned comics laureate at last year’s Lakes international comic art festival) and Flimsy Kitten creator Rachael Smith, alongside Muppets and Popeye artist Roger Langridge plus Beano chums Nigel Parkinson and Hunt Emerson!

    There’ll also be a great line-up of diverse up-and-coming talent exhibiting their work, some for the first time, getting the chance to show visitors the rich mix of just what a comic can look like.

    With that in mind, organiser Marc Jackson, has been running a weekly comics class at Tytherington High School where a small group of promising talent have been creating a comic that they will be bringing to the event – giving them their first taste of showcasing their work.

    A full program of events to enjoy during the day includes an opportunity to chat with Star Wars adventures writer/artist Nick Brokenshire (live from a wedding via Skype) talking about working on Star Wars comics. Jacob Phillips (ace colourist and son of the mighty Sean Phillips) will be conducting Dynamic life drawing outside the Town Hall along with neighbourhood Spider-Man! Plus there’ll be live panels and live drawing challenges for some of the creators.

    This year the Macclesfield O2 shop will b offering visitors the chance to try out iPad pros and iPencils throughout the day and running a competition with a first prize of an assortment of goodies including an iPencil.

    Additional support comes from The Phoenix comic who have donated 100 back issues for the 3rd year in a row, Comics Scene who have done the same and you can pick up an exclusive copy of To the Death from Simon Furman and Geoff Senior.

    On the morning of the event, between 9.30 and 11.30am, comic artist Jessica on Paper will be in residence at Macclesfield Library offering a ‘Just ask Jessica’ drawing challenge where you can sit and draw with her and challenge each other to create something on the spot.

    MACC-POW! is a totally free and totally inclusive event for all ages. Those new to comics can discover this amazing world and those well versed, get chance to chat and be inspired by their heroes.

    MACC-POW! (http://www.maccpow.co.uk) is a free inclusive event for all ages.
