The best free festival in Cheshire

Audlem really is Cheshire's southern gem, a picturesque rural village with incredible community spirit. A great venue for the festival. In 2005 the village won the DEFRA national award for 'Building Community Life' and the 'North of England Village of the Year' as well as the 'Cheshire Village of the Year'.
Audlem is where the Shires meet. Shropshire is a short walk away on the Shropshire Union Canal and Staffordshire minutes away by car. Audlem's three main roads are, appropriately, Cheshire Street, Stafford Street and Shropshire Street.
The village has three excellent pubs, the Shroppie Fly and the Bridge Inn next to the canal and the Lord Combermere in the village centre. All three become our main music venues over the festival weekend.
