Barnaby Festival 2016 isn’t far away and we’re very excited to hear the announcement that early programme details will be revealed on the 15th February, followed by the full line up of events coming later in March!

If you can’t wait until then, you’ll be pleased to hear tickets for one of the first events will also be available from next week! ‘The Astronomer’s Story’ which runs for 45 minutes throughout Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th June, is described as a theatrical adventure for families, one part of the mysterious ‘La Lune’ story which will unfold throughout the two week festival. The event is accompanied by an unusual Observatory which will appear on the lawns around Christ Church for the weekend, featuring a host of free experiences, hands on experiments and happenings.

Tickets will be available online form the 15th February, £8 (Adults & Kids) and £6 early bird for Macclesfield residents SK10 & SK11. – Click Here For Link
