“So what else happens in Middlewich during the year?” I asked a customer last weekend.
“Not a lot“, was the amused response.
I’m not sure I believe them. The town has always had a friendly and welcoming feel, whenever we’ve visited.
This was our fourth Folk and Boat (that’s where the FAB comes from in case you didn’t know) Festival in Middlewich. And it was full to the brim of magic and music – oh and of course quite a bit of trading by The Home Brew Boat and Funtastic Facepainting!
There were get togethers along the towpath, and much merriment from Thursday to Sunday frequenting The Narrowboat for ‘The Pastry Shoes’ and a jamming ‘open mike’ session, The Boars Head for ‘Earl Grey and The Charwallas’, and Middlewich Narrowboats for two USA bands Billy Lee and The Swamp-Critters and The Roamin’ Jasmine.
