'The Festival provides a platform for amateur performances with an educational element provided by professional adjudicators. Our Vision is to encourage and provide a conduit through public performances for young children to express themselves through music, speech and drama and to showcase and nurture this talent in the performing arts. We still believe in the ideal that the youth of today are talented in the arts and will always have something to offer. This talent is in all of us, and if, as a Society, we can nurture even a small amount of that talent, then we are making a difference. It is this difference that keeps us working so hard to make the Festival what it is.' Held Early May.

Women with any voice range, from low to high, are able to find a suitable harmony part. Our repertoire is more modern than classical and varies from contemporary, pop, swing, jazz, ballads and songs from films and shows. Some of our songs are performed with choreography to enhance the overall musical presentation ...’

'Formed in May 2005 with the intention of providing excellence in music making for players and audiences alike. The orchestra comes together for a brief but intensive period of preparation before each concert and players join by invitation or audition on a concert by concert basis. This flexibility enables the orchestra to attract the best available players for each concert. Over the course of twelve years, Cheshire Sinfonia has attracted widespread acclaim for its quality of ensemble, blend and the sheer freshness and exuberance of its performances. In addition to its own season of concerts, Cheshire Sinfonia collaborates in performances with its sister organisation, the chamber choir CHORALE, and has accompanied a number of the region’s choral societies.'

'Enthusiastic mixed voice choir of around 40 singers. The choir was founded in 1964 by a group of friends in Wilmslow, who met to sing in a flat near Lindow Common. Since then the choir has grown but the aim of singing for fun and friendship remains core. The choir gives four main concerts a year, in the Wilmslow, Handforth and Alderley Edge areas, and also at the RNCM. We sing a range of music, both sacred and secular. From time to time we join forces with other Choral Societies to perform larger works.'
