Entertainment at this year’s Festival


This year for the first time we are welcoming a female vocalist – Annabell.  Annabell recently took the lead female role in the Musical Starlight Express performed by the youth group ‘Tempo’ in Wilmslow Evans Theatre at the leisure centre.  You can find more about this performance and other songs sung be Annabell by clicking on the following links:

We are also delighted to be featuring the Boy Band ‘Searching for the Enemy’ for the second year running as part of our entertainment schedule.  You can find more about them on their website

It’s tomorrow! Parade at noon, free entry and no rain forecast!

wpid-m-castle-3-jpg-225x225-1.jpg.jpegTomorrow is gearing up to be a great day.  The Festival really starts when everyone gathers at the Village Hall car park at 11.45am (earlier than previously) before the procession leaves at noon for the Fancy Dress Parade around Heald Green Village. Fancy dress can be on any theme and children usually have their own ideas!


The parade will be led by the Oldham Pipe Band and the 3rd Heald Green Scouts and Cubs will be decorating the float, kindly lent by Nixon’s Farm!

On the field and in the hall there will be lots going on including new local talent ‘Searching for the Enemy’.  Don’t forget to buy your raffle tickets before the Grand Prize Draw at 4 PM!

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
