A music event in Crewe on Saturday kicks off a summer of live entertainment in the town – lasting until the end of August.
Cheshire East Council has sponsored the street entertainment programme as part of the wider Crewe Live festival that is taking place over the Jubilee weekend (June 1-4).
A stage will be set up in Lyceum Square and between 11am and 2pm on Saturday there will be a variety of music acts, including some local groups, entertaining the crowds.
Saturday’s free concert will be followed up by a programme of events over the summer that sees performances every weekend on the Lyceum Square from 11 to 2pm each Saturday.
It is expected that more than 1,000 music fans will visit the town’s pubs and club’s this weekend to see a variety of music acts as part of Crewe Live.
The festival will be headlined by the group Ash, who will be performing at The Box.
Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member in charge of prosperity and economic regeneration, said: “I hope that people will visit Crewe this weekend and enjoy the free concert that is being held in Lyceum Square.
“Through our All Change for Crewe programme we have high hopes for the regeneration of the town. Cultural events like this help attract both local residents and visitors to the town centre.”
