The town is gearing up for the biggest weekend of the summer.
The music festival is set to be the biggest showcase of Wilmslow’s musical talent.
Organisers have slashed ticket prices after receiving sponsorship. Prices are down from £12 to £5 for an adult and from £5 to £2.50 for concessions.
There will be 21 acts and 350 performers, from choirs to rock bands over three stages, as well as a festival food arena with a bar and other entertainment.
John Mills, chairman, said: “We set the original ticket prices to ensure that we covered the costs of the infrastructure required but have been bowled over by the support of our sponsors. Their generosity means a much more accessible community event.
“We’re grateful to our sponsors A-Plan Insurance, Imagine FM, Silk 106.9, as well as Wilmslow Town Council and The Evans Arts Trust.
“We are making contact with everybody who has bought a ticket to reimburse the difference.The music festival is going to be a great night out for local families and people of all ages.”
The Wilmslow Show returns after being rained off in 2012. Attractions include an RAF flying display, fun fair, archery, wild animal centre, sand art, fun dog show and bands.
Christine Munro, from the organising team, said: “We have an amazing 350-400 classic cars entered this year, the Fun Dog Show which is getting bigger each year, and the craft and artisan food marquee has award- winning producers. We also have the restored BBC 1970 Outside Broadcast Unit which everyone will be able to have a look around.”
A shuttle bus service will run from Broadway Meadow to the show and there will be free parking on Broadway Meadow.
Wilmslow Music Festival takes place tomorrow (July 12), with gates open from 5.30pm. The Wilmslow Show is this Sunday (July 14) from 11am to 5pm. Visit wilmslowmusicfestival.com and wilmslowshow.com.
