The final acts have signed up for this year’s inaugural Wilmslow Music Festival.

Banned from The Room is one of the bands that will perform. The group is made up of guitarists Andy and Theo, Rory on percussion and vocals and singer Astrid. They are all sixth form students at Wilmslow High School.

The band has been performing together for six months and appeared at numerous events, including playing for Jessica Ennis when she visited the school.

Also on the line-up is Styal Brass, below, a voluntary run brass ensemble of children from nine years old who attend schools in Wilmslow, Styal and around.

Wilmslow Community Choir will also perform.

John Mills, chairman of the organising committee, said: “It’s our aim to give the home grown acts a chance to showcase their talent.

“We’re now having to place artists who approach us on to a reserve waiting list as we have reached capacity for our four stage areas.

“It has always been our intention to provide an evening of music for everyone – for people from eight to 80 years old and we believe we now have a line-up where something should appeal to everyone.”

The Wilmslow Music Festival will take place on Friday, July 12, kicking off a weekend of festivities in Wilmslow, with the Chapel Lane Street Party on Saturday, July 13 and the 101st Wilmslow Show on Sunday, July 14.
