hgfest2018_countdown_7daysThere’s just one week to go before this year’s Festival!  Have you got your fancy dress costume ready for the Parade?

There will be the usual attractions and stalls, funfair, BBQ, food and drink stalls, as well as lots of entertainment outside in the Arena and inside Hall.  Our local junior footballers will once again be playing in the annual football tournament and Paul Dickov, formerly with Manchester City FC, will present the shield and medals.

Finally, don’t forget the Festival Grand Draw with the Mayor of Stockport. The winners will be announced at 4pm, if you would like to purchase your tickets in advance, there is a last chance to do so outside Cafe Unity Saturday 23rd June in the morning.
