With 5 days to go until the big 100th GatFest we are getting ridiculously excited, and we hope that you are too!
The festival day kicks off with the parade starting at The Kingsway school at 12pm and finishes around 12.45 at the festival field on Gatley Hill.
Please buy your programmes in advance if you can and avoid the queues on the day. These will act as your ticket to the field and are priced at £2.50 from several of our great local businesses:
• Jacksons Urban Kitchen (Cheadle)
• The Horse and Farrier
• Jackson O’Malley Butchers
• Village Domestics
• Me Time
• The Prince of Wales•
• Love Beauty
(Under 16’s are free)
We will of course also be selling these at the entry point after the parade and will now be accepting card and cash. Save time on the gate if you have bought in advance and walk through our fast track entry by showing us your programmes.
There really is heaps to do for all the family!
Our Parade includes bands, dancers and our local schools and groups. We even have a Spider Man joining us this year.
On the field is a fairground, inflatables and bungee trampolines.
Come and see the Majestic Owls or take a Donkey ride. Take a picture with our stilt performers or enjoy a drink from the fully licensed bar whist watching the acts in our arena – we have a gymnastics display, singers, parade Pipe bands and a Circus Workshop.
If this wasn’t enough, we have a heap of stalls selling a variety of fantastic products, glitter and face painting, and some delicious savoury food vendors including Thai, chicken wraps, curries, Tacos, Paella, a BBQ and Pizzas. For those who like a sweet treat we have crepes, ice creams, snow cones and doughnuts.
