The Audlem Festival is an annual music and arts festival which has run in the South Cheshire village of Audlem since 2000. There's music to suit all tastes, exhibitions, poetry events and on the bank holiday Monday the traditional carnival.
As usual entry to all events is completely free, so why not come along, visit our beautiful village and enjoy performances from talented performers and artists from across the UK, Europe and beyond.
We have another great line up of acts this year starting in the 3 pubs on Thursday and Friday evenings and then daytime and evening on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday. There will be outside stages at The Shroppie Fly, The Bridge Inn & The Lord Combermere as well as a brand new venue, No. 11 Cheshire Street. There will also be another fantastic Choral Day at St James Church with classical peformances in The Methodist Church.
The Methodist Church Hall will also be hosting the much anticipated Art Exhibition featuring local and not so local talent.
The Festival would not be possible without our sponsors, advertisers, pubs, churches, shops, volunteers and of course everyone that attends. A particularly big thank you goes to our major sponsors this year:–
Morris Care, United Carpets, KMF, Audlem Parish Council & Cheshire East

Heavy Weather is a hard hitting three piece blues/rock band fronted by FM and Bernie Marsden Band guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick. They perform a mixture of popular originals and well–worked covers.
