The Barnaby Festival weekend will see the Barnaby Parade (17th June) a Community Arts Trail across Macclesfield Town Centre (17th & 18th June) and the Barnaby Listening Tent (17th June).

The Barnaby Festival Listening Tent

With a mind to explore future avenues for Barnaby’s presence within the town, the festival will play host to The Listening Tent, in St Michael’s Churchyard. A space to share Barnaby memories, give feedback and suggestions, and act as a festival hub for information and to meet the current Barnaby team.


Barnaby Festival is all about celebrating the creativity of Macclesfield. Through Barnaby Platform we want to highlight the incredible events and activities taking place around Macclesfield surrounding and during the festival weekend.
