FROM June 24 to July 4, Lymm Festival returns: indoors, outdoors and online, bringing live events back to Lymm with a safe and varied programme that has something for everyone.
There will be music, art, comedy, literature and even some science, as well as family fun, exhibitions and online events to bring the Festival into your home.
Don’t miss this year’s special guest, Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, who will be flying in to discuss his experiences as a downhill skier and as the subject of a major biographical film. There will also be a talk on ‘The Physics of Star Wars’, and the ever-popular annual comedy night.
For music, check out folk, blues and classical nights, each headlined by acclaimed performers and featuring a number of local acts. There is also an evening of musical comedy and even a special story concert for children.
Outdoors are returning favourites such as Historic Transport Day, Open Gardens and Scarecrow Trail, plus a Family Fun Day on the last weekend.
Inspired by the success of last year’s online Festival, organisers are also offering several virtual events, including a Q+A with award-winning local crime author Martin Edwards, an online baking class, and several virtual exhibitions.
The Festival organising team has worked hard to create a programme that offers Lymm Festival’s characteristic mix of music, comedy, literature and more, whilst still prioritising the health and safety of all involved. All events will adhere strictly to the government’s COVID-19 guidance, and any cancelled shows will be fully refunded.
Tickets are available online or from the Festival’s box office at the Village Hall, and there are lots of free events as well. With venues having reduced capacity this year, to allow for social distancing, tickets will go fast!
Find the full programme and box office hours at lymmfestival.org.uk, where you can also sign up to the newsletter to receive updates about new tickets going on sale if social distancing restrictions change.
