Festivalgoers are being promised 100 acres of entertainment and activities in what is set to be the must-see event of the summer.

The Brit Fest takes place at the Ashley Hall Showground at Altrincham from July 5-7.

And organisers say they are on track for the brilliant new three-day event to be the highlight of the summer for music fans as well as family festivalgoers.

An unmissable mix of British music acts and legendary chart-toppers already announced and heading for the festival’s main stage include Bonnie Tyler, Scouting for Girls, Cast, Dodgy, The Feeling, Paul Young, Kim Wilde, Tunde from The Lighthouse Family, T’Pau, Toploader, Fleur East, Heather Small, Sonia and Hot Chocolate.

And there is also a full line-up of bands, choirs, DJs, solo acts, cover outfits, authors, wellness experts and motivational speakers on the site’s ABC+ Warranty Stage including M60, The Covasettes, Prose, Daisy Valentine, Megan Wyn and many more during the three-day event.

Meanwhile The Brit Fest also boasts a huge additional programme of fantastic festival entertainment across 100 acres of the showground site, including the John Collins Fun Fair and some huge ride attractions.

The Extreme Mountain Bike Show featuring five times British Champion and European Champion Danny Butler and his team in a nail-biting show of jaw dropping stunts and agility, takes place in the Action Zone. Yogalife will be keeping things zen in the Mindful Meadow, and there are rides for the young ones in the Tinker Town.

The Taste Cheshire Village within the Village Green features 60 local producers and retailers.

The Village Green is also great for thrill-seekers with TimberJacks Axe Throwing, described as the UK’s ultimate axe throwing experience; the ABC+ Warranty Free Fall, and Royal Marines and Commando experience Civvy 2 Commando. There is also the chance to meet the stars from the Manchester Storm ice hockey team and try to shoot a puck past the goalie. Film fans can pop into the Sol Cinema, a solar-powered vintage caravan showing classic British short films, while youngsters can relax on beanbags at the Big Hat Tipi Children’s Cinema.

Samba Espirito will bring irresistible carnival energy or follow the Manchester Pop Trail around the site to discover the amazing history and facts about some of the musicians who have played in the North-West.

The entertainment across the festival site also includes recycling workshops, a Glam Shack, crafts, vintage clothing, and classic car displays – along with the chance to win a new Toyota Aygo.

The Brit Fest is organised by Olivier nominated brothers Anthony and Edward Prophet.

Anthony Prophet says: “With three months to go until we throw open the festival ground doors, it’s full steam ahead behind the scenes to make sure The Brit Fest is the most exciting and successful event of the summer.

“We’ve brought together a brilliant line-up of talent to thrill music fans and a huge range of entertainment and experiences for audiences of all ages – 100 acres of it in fact - on one festival ground.

“Whether you’re a regular festivalgoer or someone who has thought about going to a festival but never done it until now, we can promise you a very special weekend this July.”

The Brit Fest is sponsored by award-winning, Top 200 UK law firm Myerson, and Partners. Myerson chief executive officer Carl Newton said: “This is an amazing festival in the heart of the community, run by a great team, which is one of the reasons we wanted to get involved.”

Festival Partners are ABC+ Warranty, Delta Hotels, Camden Town Brewery, Ashley Hall Showground, Go Goodwins, LWC and Marlish.
