    Unitarian Chapel, King Edward Street, Macclesfield

    Macclesfield Quakers hold meetings twice a month.

    You're invited to join us for Meeting for Worship at the beautiful King Edward Street Unitarian Chapel.

    The Quaker Way is firmly based in the belief that everyone has equal access to the Divine.

    Simple, silent group communion with the Divine - however it is thought of - is at the core of the British Quaker Way.

    There is no service and no priest, just the willingness to directly experience the Sacred as a group, rather than through a mediated service or personal meditation.

    During this simple yet rich worship, anyone may be deeply moved by the Spirit to speak, enriching the silence rather than interrupting it.

    Meeting for Worship begins at 2.30pm for one hour, followed by refreshments and informal discussion.

    The chapel provides a wheelchair ramp for access from the street, a loop system for the hearing impaired, and accessible toilet facilities. There is ample car parking across the road."

    Quaker Meeting for worship is held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at the Unitarian Chapel on King Edward Street from 2.30-3.30pm.

    Tatton tradition and make-believe magic

    If you’re looking for a fairy-tale Christmas this year, Tatton Park’s Mansion has been transformed into a magical celebration of ten much-loved fairy tales.

    Experience the impressive state rooms and fascinating servant’s quarters as never before. Visitors will be immersed in a dazzling world of forest green, ruby red, golden thread and snow white. Marvel at fantastic fairy-tale themed rooms, beautiful Christmas decorations and festive floral displays from the end of November right through to 5th January 2020. 

    Who is the fairest of them all?

    Follow the Fairy Godmother’s trail through the Mansion to discover creative interpretations of legendary stories, entertaining costumed characters and the chance to make special wishes for your perfect Christmas. 

    Dare to join Little Red Riding Hood in the yellow Drawing Room or stroll through a sparkling wintry forest to find Snow White’s enchanted mirror to ask “Who is the fairest of them all?” Rapunzel, with her long blonde hair cascading down the Grand Staircase, might just be the answer!

    A favourite for all ages is Beauty and the Beast in the atmospheric Library, exquisitely illuminated with glittering candelabra. Continue along the trail to Aladdin’s golden palace, richly decorated with Arabian rugs, and then find the password to uncover Ali Baba and his 40 thieves, veiled in mystery in the Music Room.

    Calling all Prince and Princesses - will the slipper fit?

    The story of Cinderella is a highlight of the visit. Children can wear a crown and have their photo taken beside the Pumpkin Carriage, before everyone tries on her slipper for size, just in case it fits! 

    The fascinating Servant’s Quarters pay homage to the timeless tales of Hansel and Gretel - with a magnificent Witch’s gingerbread house in the Kitchen alongside Goldilocks and the Three Bears making mischief in the Scullery! Don’t forget to conjure some spells with the Fairy Godmother in her magic pantry before you enjoy your homemade festive treat as you bid farewell.

    6:00 pmMarket Place, Macclesfield

    Everyone is invited to gather together in Macclesfield Market Place, on Thursday 5th December at 6pm, in memory of loved ones, to sing carols and reflect on their memories at what can be a challenging time of year.

    Helena Gowler, Community Engagement Officer for Macclesfield Town Council said ‘Christmas can be really tough when you someone you love is no longer here to share it with. It is such a busy time and sometimes it can feel like your loved one has been forgotten. The Tree of Light gives people the opportunity to come together and remember the people they love, together.’

    On the lead up to the event, people are invited to write a message on a star which will be hung on the tree before the get together. Stars can be collected from the Visitor Information Centre, St Michael’s Church and the Macclesfield Cemetery Office. They will be available from Monday 14th October but must be returned to one of these hubs by Monday 11th November so that they can be prepared and hung on the tree.

    People are encouraged to come along to the event on the 5th December to see all of the memory stars on the tree, to join in with the carols led by All Hallows Catholic College, and reflect in memory of someone special.

    For any queries, please contact Helena Gowler at Macclesfield Town Council on admin@macclesfield-tc.gov.uk or 01625 374142.
