  • * Visit from the Mayor of Stockport – Cllr Linda Weekes Holt

To create the street party atmosphere, Bramhall Lane South was closed throughout the day and many traders joined in with food sampling, pop up bars and street food, and festival hair braiding.

Chairman of Bramhall Together Trust, Roger Prydderch commented,

“It’s great to see so many people out and about in Bramhall and having a great family day out. This year’s event had a real street party atmosphere, helped by the road closure, street food, pop up bars, live entertainment and high quality market stalls.”
