    The Bollington Festival has been an important part of Bollington life since its inception sixty years ago. The aim of the Festival, which takes place roughly every four years, is to promote civic pride, community spirit and inclusivity.

    The Bollington Festival is a registered charity, run entirely by volunteers and supported by grants and donations. It is thought to be the only Festival which is run this way, in the whole of the UK.

    Brace yourselves sisters – the habit is coming to Buxton!

    Don’t miss this eagerly anticipated brand new production of the Broadway and UK award winning musical Sister Act direct from London.

    All your prayers have been answered with a stunning cast, including Coronation Street and theatre legend Wendi Peters as Mother Superior* and West End star Landi Oshinowo as Deloris, everyone’s favourite nun on the run!

    Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent! Encouraged to help the struggling choir, she helps her fellow sisters find their true voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

    Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted) and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this heavenly musical is joyous and uplifting in equal measures. A musical sent from above, Sister Act is the brilliant, must-see show which raises the spirits and warms the soul time after time.

     

    *note Wendi Peters will not be performing Mon 27 May.

    Gawsworth Scout Hall, 20 Church Lane, Gawsworth, Macclesfield SK11 9QY

    Out of the acclaimed folk band, Magna Carta, a new duo has been born.

    Ken Nicol and violinist Wendy Ross now combine their talents in a tour-de-force of music, song, storytelling and even some comedy.

    Ken and Wendy will be live on stage at Gawsworth Scout Hall, on Friday 26th July, in a concert to raise funds for The Gawsworth Hub*.

    Ken, whose pedigree includes spells with Steeleye Span, Al Stewart and The Albion Band, is considered one of the UK’s top guitarists.

    Wendy, was classically trained and experienced a wide spectrum of musical genres working with touring bands and philharmonic orchestras before joining Magna Carta.

    Acoustic Magazine said: “The musicianship is staggering, seldom are the compositions less than inspired.”

    Living Tradition wrote: “Rollercoasters of musical virtuosity that spellbind.”

    And legendary folk artist Ralph McTell said to expect: “Humour, great guitar skill and the right drop of humility, and a passion for right, proper, good music.”

    Licensed bar. Tickets £12 can be obtained from Gawsworth Hub.

    *Gawsworth Hub comprises a shop and deli, café and meeting place, run by volunteers for the benefit of the Gawsworth community. Tickets can be obtained from The Hub, 2-4 Longbutts Lane
