Cheshire East Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said:

“We are really gearing up to this year’s Carnival now. It’s encouraging to see so many local performers are keen to be involved, ensuring there is something for all the family.

“My thanks go to the Carnival Group for their work in organising the event. I urge families in Crewe and beyond to get down to the Lyceum Theatre on August 2 and get their tickets for what is sure to be a memorable day.”

Silk FM presenter Andy Bailey, said:

‘I don’t think we’ve ever had this much variety at Crewe Carnival - there really is something for everyone. Loads of towns up and down the land have lost their big local events, and it’s important everybody comes out and supports what is a thriving festival of entertainment. I can’t wait for the party to start!’

Volume director Toby Robinson, added:

“I think we’ve come up with the strongest and most diverse line-up of bands, artists and performers in years.

“Hopefully we’ve given the town enough reasons to get excited about Crewe Carnival 2010. Everyone can expect a great mix of entertainment and it’s free.”

Please find below further information on the bands that are due to perform at this year’s carnival:

Well-known on the local music circuit, Vavoom will entertain with a sound that transcends generations. Both old and young can enjoy their rock ‘n’ roll, influenced by the likes of Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, Stray Cats and the Brian Setzer Orchestra.
