Funky line-up for vil­lage fete

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A POPULAR funk band has been an­nounced as the head­liner for this year’s Lan­g­ley Fete.

The Chi­nese Mar­bles, a soul, funk and rock band from Macclesfield, have been picked as the head­line act for the mu­si­cal line-up at this year’s event on Sun­day, June 28.

The com­mit­tee be­hind the event are pleased to sign up the band as they pre­pare for the fete, which fea­tures a va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment for all ages.

Tony Quinn, fete or­gan­iser, said: “The af­ter­noon’s en­ter­tain­ment will end on a spec­tac­u­lar high note with a mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza fea­tur­ing melodic rock band Night Flight, djembe drum­ming group Kon­taani and The Chi­nese Mar­bles.

“Last year’s fete was an out­stand­ing suc­cess, with more than 1,000 peo­ple com­ing along to en­joy the af­ter­noon.

“It is an im­por­tant event for the vil­lage as all the pro­ceeds go to­wards the up­keep of our vil­lage hall plus a Christ­mas meal and cabaret evening held each year for all our older res­i­dents.”

The af­ter­noon fea­tures chil­dren’s races and crafts, a bouncy cas­tle, co­conut shy, face paint­ing, tombola and a cricket com­pe­ti­tion as well as stalls, bar­be­cue and beer.

The duck races will be held all af­ter­noon on the banks of the River Bollin, as well as a clas­sic car dis­play and T’ai Chi demon­stra­tions.

The Fell Race will take com­peti­tors up and down Teggs Nose and there will be fierce ri­valry as lo­cal pub teams take part in a tug of war com­pe­ti­tion.

This year’s dog show has eight cat­e­gories in­clud­ing wag­gi­est tail, best res­cue, hand­somest dog and best vet­eran, plus large, small and over­all cham­pion.

The event starts at 1pm on Lan­g­ley play­ing fields.
