We are a small, (but growing), volunteer-led event held annually on the western outskirts of Greater Manchester. We try to combine the best elements of the more traditional community event with modern street theatre and New Circus-style entertainment, plus live music of many genres and styles. Over the years we have presented some of the biggest names in British street theatre and also acts from around the world. We also often commission community arts projects involving local people which culminate in a performance of some kind on the day of the Festival. We hope to expand the event in the coming years.
