"...However 'Cheshire Folk' proposal was to insert that aspect of the festival into their event at no risk to the Council.

"There won't be a folk festival this year as we used to know it - that website is out of date and put up by the old committee who have all resigned. It's complicated! There will be a fringe of sorts and maybe a band or two! There is Ceilidh and Morris planned."
Perhaps that goes some way to answering the questions posed. No further comment, save to say that we support the Town Council's efforts to ensure that there is a festival for the benefit of the town this year. Enough said.
