Res­i­dents urged to be star turns

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

AS Barn­aby Fes­ti­val swings into or­bit, res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to get in­volved and help cre­ate 10,000 stars to dec­o­rate the town.

The theme for the 2016 fes­ti­val is ‘Space’ with this in mind the Barn­aby Fes­ti­val, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Art­sS­pace, is call­ing for 10,000 stars to be cre­ated to dec­o­rate the town dur­ing the pa­rade.

As a spon­sor of this year’s fes­ti­val, the Tesco Metro store, on Ex­change Street, is host­ing free Star Craft Work­shops each Satur­day in April, from 10am un­til 4pm.

Zak Lees, store man­ager, said: “As we are lo­cated in the heart of the town it seems fit­ting that we are also at the heart of our com­mu­nity. Our Star Craft Work­shops are open to ev­ery­one, if you want to make your own star be our guest and come down to the store to cre­ate your own star.”

The idea be­hind the 10,000 stars was to link in with the events in the fes­x­ti­val, par­tic­u­larly the ‘As­tronomers story’ at La Lune.

Lynne Jones, from Barn­aby, said: “Tesco have been a great help in en­gag­ing our lo­cal com­mu­nity and get­ting in­volved with the spirit of the fes­ti­val.”
