Tickets to all three folk nights are £15 for general admission and £10 for children under 16 (must be accompanied by 18+).

An exciting new Battle of the Bands competition will take place on Saturday 13th June at The Legh Arms.

Tickets for this event are just £10 general admission and £6 for children under 16 (must be accompanied by 18+).

Knutsford Music Festival 2020 Cancelled

May 27, 2020

Knutsford Town Council has continually monitored the latest government advice concerning the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the evolving social distancing advice designed to limit the spread of the virus. Our priority is always public health and we strive to make responsible decisions when planning events to protect the public, our volunteers and our staff.

The Events and Town Centre Management Committee met on 26th May to review the latest guidance with respect holding the Knutsford Music Festival in September. With huge regret the decision was taken that it would not be sensible to attempt to hold the event and as such there will be no Knutsford Music Festival 2020. Knutsford Town Council prioritises the health and safety of our residents and we do not feel that continuing with a large-scale event at this time is the best way to do this.
