    Everyone’s favourite 1970s classic TV comedy, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, is back in an extended tour. Due to popular demand further dates have been added around the country.

    Joe Pasquale stars as the loveable accident-prone Frank Spencer, Sarah Earnshaw as his wife Betty and Susie Blake as his disapproving Mother-in-Law, Mrs Fisher.

    The most successful sitcom of the decade gave us the hapless Frank and his long-suffering wife Betty with catchphrases galore and a never-ending list of disasters with roller-skating escapades and runaway chickens.

    Joe Pasquale is a national comedy treasure and is one of the hardest working and top-selling live comedians in British comedy today.  He exploded onto our tellies in New Faces and went on to win I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and host The Price is Right and Susie Blake’s incredible career highlights include Wicked, Blithe Spirit and she had us in stiches in The Victoria Wood Show for the BBC. Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is directed by the award-winning Guy Unsworth.

    Some Mother’s do ‘Av ‘Em is here 27 February – 3 March Tickets are priced at £28-£35.Discounts are available. To buy tickets contact Buxton Opera House Box Office, Tel: 01298 72190 or visit: www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk

    The Big Barnaby Update

    St Michael’s Church, Macclesfield
    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 mail@barnabyfestival.co.uk 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 mandy@barnabyfestival.org.uk and find out how you can help keep Barnaby working for Macclesfield.

    Justin Fletcher and Mr. Bloom return to the biggest Children’s Festival in the UK

    Geronimo Festival has announced their exciting 2018 headliners and families are in for an entertainment packed weekend.

    Children’s TV Megastar, Justin Fletcher returns to Geronimo this year and will headline the Main Stage on Saturday 26th May. The ever-popular C-beebies star will be on-hand to keep young children and their families entertained on stage during his afternoon performance.

    Youtube teen stars, Max and Harvey will be joining the star line up for 2018 and cementing Geronimo’s place as the premier children’s UK festival.

    On Sunday, children are in for another treat as Mr. Bloom takes to the stage introducing his 40 minute show which features his amazing four-piece band. The hilarious duo, Cook and Line will also be hosting their brilliant slapstick Pirate Show and don’t forget that there is a whole host of other performers and activities to enjoy!

    For the very first time at Geronimo; the world famous Gandey’s Circus with their 1,200 seater big top, will definitely be one of the attractions you shouldn’t miss! In addition, there'll be a 130 ft big wheel, we look forward to seeing your pics from the top!

    Simon Goldman, Geronimo Festival organiser commented:

    ‘Announcing our headline acts is always a really exciting time for us this year we have our best line-up yet. Justin Fletcher and Mr Bloom are Children’s TV royalty and always keep the children (and their parents!) enraptured. This year acts will take to the stage in the afternoon so that everyone gets a chance to come along and have fun at the main stage.’

    Taking place from 25th - 28th May 2018, Geronimo is returning to the stunning Arley Hall in Northwich, Cheshire which is set over acres of land ensuring not only more attractions but also a top-notch campsite. The duration of the event has also been extended to four days so that more families can take advantage of everything the show has to offer.

    Dubbed ‘Glastonbury for Kids’, Geronimo has something for every member of the family whatever their age and full details of attractions can be found at the website www.geronimofest.com. We haven’t forgotten the adults either, Bathing under the Sky are providing excellent spa facilities and we have also provided a crèche so that parents can have some “me time”.

    Simon continued:

    ‘Our Early Bird Tickets offer is available until the end of January and it’s the perfect time to book – not only can families can take advantage of lower prices but they can also make sure they get to see their child’s favourite TV stars.’

    Tier 1 family tickets available from just £25 per person throughout January. As an added incentive, early birds who purchase Tier 1 tickets will receive a free wristband for the Victorian Fun Fair.

    You can bring your own tent, caravan or motor home or simply let Geronimo take the hassle out of camping with their range of themed tents available to suit families whatever their size.
