Altrincham Festival 2019

Thank you for visiting our website. After 41 wonderful years Altrincham Festival had a revamp in 2018. The changes proved a hit and we are looking forward to the 6th July 2019. Do you have any suggestions for how we can improve the parade or the showground entertainment? if so, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

After 40 years the Altrincham and District Festival is undergoing some changes this year. We did a survey and we have been listening to comments that have been made. This is Sarah and Bernie two committee members answering some questions from Damian from Trafford Sound. Would you like to take part? or can you help? please do let us know.

Please be patient with us as we form our new committee for 2019.

More details and plans will be announced as soon as we can. 

We have a shortfall to cover the cost of putting on the necessary road closures to enable us to have the popular Altrincham and District grand parade, which is FREE to enter for foreveryone.

Please visit our Crowdfunding page by following THIS LINK 

We are non for profit and every single penny will go towards us putting on the BIGGEST FREE SHOW in Trafford. 

Business Sponsorship Appeal

Every year since 1977, Altrincham Festival's Grand Parade processes through the town on the first Saturday in July from St Margaret's Road in Bowdon, right through Altrincham town centre to the Festival Showground (Beech Fields) in Timperley where we host all day entertainment.  The Festival has been our community's social glue for 40 years as it enables local organisations and good causes to raise their profile, showcases local talent and encourages people to enjoy a wonderful day out in our area. This year we are adopting a theme of 'Movies' for the Grand Parade and this theme will also be reflected in entertainment at the Showground. The Parade is free to enter but we charge a small fee for Showground space.  A new committee is in charge this year and following a public survey, we are beginning to make changes to the Festival, to bring it up-to-date and in line with visitors' desires.  

On the environmental front:

  • We are introducing a free double decker bus service (Euro 6) to transport people to and from Altrincham Interchange and the Showground, thereby reducing the number of individual car journeys necessary. 
  • We're also aiming to recycle the majority of the waste produced on the Showground and our food/drink operators will be using biodegradable and recyclable packaging. 
  • We're inviting local electric/hybrid car manufacturers to exhibit on the Showground to help encourage a reduction in Altrincham area emissions.

Altrincham Festival costs at least £20,000 per year and as grant funding becomes harder and harder to obtain, we are seeking business sponsorship with a choice of three levels – GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE. All sponsors enjoy the benefits of publicity through a revamped printed and electronic marketing communications campaign as well as complimentary marketing space on our showground (Saturday July 7th) and in the Grand Parade if they so wish.
