One of the biggest food festivals in the UK is being planned for the town centre of Macclesfield.
On the last Saturday in June the town will be a buzz with food traders, exhibitors and live entertainment.
Macclesfield was the centre of the silk weaving industry, renowned for the skill of its designers and for its richly patterned woven fabrics. Charles Roe (1715-1781) built the town’s first water-powered mill in 1774 and his entrepreneurship was the making of Macclesfield.
More recently Macclesfield has become famous for its connections with the bands Joy Division/New Order and of course The Macc Lads/FILF
A free to enter festival with fun for all the family!
