Music fans flock to event for full festival experience
MUSIC fans got the full festival experience – rain and all – at Stockport’s Headlander event over the weekend.
The festival, which is in its third year, is held at Stockport Rugby Club on Headlands Road, Bramhall, and attracts thousands with its mixture of live music and family fun.
Headline acts this year included Roachford, beatbox harmonica player Son of Dave, and From The Jam featuring Bruce Foxton, original bassist with iconic band The Jam.
Joining them on the line-up were an eclectic mix of performers such as the Manchester Airport Choir, X Factor semi-final- ist James Michael, Stockport-based folk trio The Hayes Sisters, and Nashville-based singer songwriter Clive Gregson.
As well as the live music, a family fun day was held on Saturday that featured a range of activities including music workshops, bouncy castles, circus skills, rides, music workshops and amusements.
There were magicians, storytellers and stilt walkers, performances from local theatre groups such as Romiley’s NK Theatre Arts, and a trade village with local crafts, food and drink.
