THE or­gan­is­ers of the Head­lan­der Fes­ti­val are look­ing for an in­di­vid­ual, busi­ness or char­ity in­ter­ested in us­ing their £80,000 mar­quee on the Thurs­day night.

The fes­ti­val is due to take place on the week­end of June 21 and 22 at Stock­port Rugby Club in Bramhall, and the mar­quee will be erected on the Wed­nes­day for a sports­man’s din­ner.

On the Fri­day it will be used for a gala din­ner hosted by Mar­ket­ing Stock­port, but there is cur­rently a va­cancy for an event on the Thurs­day.

Last year the mar­quee was used by char­ity Mil­lie’s Trust for a fundrais­ing din­ner.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers are keen to hear from a busi­ness or char­ity with an event to fea­ture in June – and are even open to work­ing with a lo­cal cou­ple look­ing to get mar­ried.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­iser Chris Keene said: “This year the set up and run­ning costs of the fes­ti­val mar­quee is in ex­cess of £80,000 and we would love to of­fer the op­por­tu­nity for us­age at a frac­tion of the cost to en­sure it doesn’t go un­used for the night.

“We are open to any ideas that peo­ple may have and just urge you to get in touch with any in­ter­est.’’

Last year’s fes­ti­val saw over 5,000 peo­ple at­tend over two days to watch head­line acts such as To­ploader and Stooshe and en­joy the fam­ily fun­fair, lo­cal crafts, food and drink.

Any­one in­ter­ested in the mar­quee can con­tact Rachael at rachael@just-r.com or on 07921 522218.
