A Vintage Success for the 2015 Bramhall Festival

18 Jun 2015

Another year, another successful festival! Bramhall Together Trust did it again; the “Step Back in Time” festival was everything it promised to be.

We were very privileged to have a May Pole on the middle of the roundabout! It’s not every day that you see this spectacle and our children did us proud as always, putting their best foot forward as they stopped the traffic watched by the Mayor…’

The Festival was launched on Friday with a fabulous Tea Party, organised by Wendy Green from www.ilovebramhall.com for Bramhall’s senior citizens. It was a glorious afternoon in the grounds of St. Michael’s Church where more than 240 guests enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea whilst being entertained and pampered by local businesses, schools, groups and volunteers.

Saturday began with a Bramhall Festival 5k, organised by Bramhall Runners and sponsored by Hydraulic and Gas Services, adults and children took part and there were some fantastic 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes up for grabs.

The Parade was sponsored by Williams BMW, who brought their brand new i8 & i3 cars.

There were some fabulous participants in the parade including Bramhall & Woodford Rotary float carrying Elsa, Fiona Watson School of Dance, 1st Bramhall Cubs, Ladybrook School, Stockport Lacrosse Club, Sophie Dee School of Dance, Moss Hey School and Tumble Tots. The parade cup sponsored by The Himor Group (the Village Square landlords) and was won by 1st Bramhall Cubs, who also picked up £200.

Bramhall Village, which looked beautiful covered in bunting, was perfectly organised with a great selection of vintage stalls, including Napa’s pop up bar and a Bramhall Together Trust Pimms bar and lots of food stalls.

For the children there was a lovely little fairground, donkey rides, balloon modeling and a great selection of traditional games organised by Fords Lane Church.

There was 2 days on entertainment on the Imagine FM stage including Alex Lees the winner of Bramhall’s Got Talent 2014

The weekend came to a close on Sunday in the grounds of Hillbrook Grange with Songs of Praise, strawberries and cream.

Roger Prydderch, Chair of the Bramhall Together Trust emphasised, “ (that) the true highlight of the weekend was seeing the community pulling together to make a success of the festival, from the local businesses that kindly sponsored the festival, to the stall holders who provided delicious treats and unique vintage products and of course all the great people of Bramhall who came to support the festival despite the rain earlier in the day!”

The Bramhall Together Trust are a small group of volunteers from Bramhall businesses, community groups and local residents who commit a great deal of time and effort into organising events such as this, along with other local showpieces such as Bramhall’s Got Talent and Light Up Bramhall. If you wish to be involved or would like to sponsor the next event please contact the Bramhall Together Trust through their Facebook Page.
