Altrincham's First High Street Festival
Come along and celebrate Altrincham’s Great British High Street win at the town’s first High Street Festival on Friday 17th May, 12 noon till 8pm. This community event is free, and everyone is welcome to enjoy fashion shows, music and special guests.
The festival will open with a performance from the award-winning Altrincham Boys Grammar School Swing Band, followed by fashion shows from some of Altrincham’s independent retailers and high street brands including Daniel Christian Menswear, Laundry B, Violet Loves Vintage, Pure Boutique and Marks & Spencer. There will also be a special appearance by students from Sew Creative who will be showing their unique handmade designs. Local choirs will take to the stage, including Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College, Wellington School, Altrincham C of E Primary, Park Road Academy Timperley, Absolute Belters, Di Voci Choir, and The Music Place Choir. The event will be hosted by a celebrity guest and there will also be some surprise street performers throughout the day, PLUS children's crafts and entertainment to keep the little ones busy!
Elizabeth Faulkner, the BID Manager for Altrincham Unlimited explained, “This community event gives us the opportunity to thank everyone for the incredible hard work that went into Altrincham winning the Great British High Street Award and for their support with the pilot project for the National High Street Perfect Day. If you’re in town shopping or for business, in your lunch hour or after work, why not come and see the fashion shows, listen to the local choirs, or make an evening of it and enjoy the town’s fabulous restaurants and bars”.
