Langley fete will have it all
ORGANISERS are keeping their fingers crossed for the return of good weather in time for the annual Langley Fete.
The massive event, which attracts hundreds of revellers, takes place on Sunday, June 26.
This year Macclesfield band The Chinese Marbles will perform, bringing their unique taste on soul, funk and rock to the stage for a party not to be missed.
Starting at 1pm on Langley playing fields, the fete will boast a fantastic afternoon of fun, entertainment and live music for both children and adults alike.
There will be children’s races and crafts, bouncy slide, coconut shy, face painting, tombola and a cricket competition as well as many stalls selling everything from plants and herbs to vintage goods, books and toys.
The famous Langley duck races will be held all afternoon on the banks of the River Bollin as well as a classic car display and the Fell Race, which will see competitors running up and down Teggs Nose.
One of the fete highlights is the ever popular dog show.
With eight categories including waggiest tail, best rescue, handsomest dog, prettiest bitch, best veteran, large, small and overall champion.
There will be plenty to eat and drink with a fantastic barbecue, tea tent, ice creams and everyone’s favourite, the beer tent which will be offering a great selection of real ales.
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 headlining will be The Chinese Marbles.
Tony Quinn, who organises the event, said: “Last year’s fete was an outstanding success with well over 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 which is held each year for all our older residents.”
