Barnaby Bright is a collection of midsummer events for 2021 running between 17 -27 June, which support the artistic, creative and cultural life of the town. All events will take place in a covid-safe way in line with restrictions.


The programme includes:

  • a major work commissioned from internationally acclaimed artist Liz West;
  • a Covid-safe response to the traditional Barnaby parade;
  • an music industry masterclass programme for Macclesfield musicians produced by Brighter Sound with Mash Guru;
  • a performance and installation from Simon Buckley (Not Quite Light) that culminates from 18 months work in the Macclesfield Forest,
  • participatory workshops, cabaret events and markets.

The programme is supported by Arts Council England,  Macclesfield Town Council, and Cheshire East Council. Working together with these and other partners we aim to ensure that arts, culture and heritage can play its important role in supporting the town in recovery.
