May 09, 2024 by Alex Molloy in  News

Knutsford Music Festival returns with a bang next month with an exciting line up set to take the stage from 13th-16th June. Once again, festival organiser Knutsford Town Council has worked alongside BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe to arrange a brilliant programme of folk music alongside blues and many free offerings throughout the town.

The free open-air Music on the Moor returns on Saturday 15th June from 12pm–4pm featuring live music and activities for all ages. Local bands Healey Badger and Instant Vintage will return to stage alongside some new faces to the festival such as Jack Woodward, Ambiere, Chloey Rose and Hangman’s Howl. This event will also showcase the talents of upcoming youngsters Elise Higham and Perine Duchesnes. On the day there will also be a creative craft table run by Love to Craft Mcr, where you can be inspired by the rhythm of the music to create your own masterpiece! Alternatively, why not join the stars of Noodle Performing Arts and have a go at a taking part in a performance workshop? If you need a pick me up after all the action, we have Knutsford Scouts running a BBQ and a Knutsford Beer Festival pop-up!
