Welcome to the Macclesfield Barnaby Festival website

Barnaby Festival is Macclesfield’s biennial arts festival, co-curated with the local community. Every two years, Barnaby hits Macclesfield’s streets with a fantastic celebration of all things creative, artistic, moving, cultural, collaborative, spectacular, fun and memorable.

Due to COVID-19, we have sadly had to postpone the 2020 festival until 2021 or until we can ensure the safety of all involved. We launched a digital programme of engaging cultural activity in June, starting with a full weekend programme which you can now watch online here. Over the coming months, we will be running  further digital events and opportunities including our upcoming week-long programme of FREE circus skills and storymaking workshops.
