Everyone’s rethinking what they do, and Macclesfield’s Barnaby Festival is no exception.

Barnaby was all set to return to Macclesfield’s unique town centre venues and spaces this June. While we aren’t able to deliver the Festival as normal, we’re delighted to announce that a reimagined digital programme will be launched over the weekend of June 20 & 21.

More, we are excited to announce that our bid to receive Emergency Funding from Arts Council England has been successful, which will enable us to re-scope our plans. Launched with a small programme of engaging digital cultural activity on the traditional Barnaby dates of June 20 & 21, a wider programme will follow in the coming months.

While anything we do must take into account the needs of our communities, plus local and central government guidance on health and safety, we’re working hard to deliver opportunities for Macclesfield to take part, share experience, explore new ideas, and have FUN.
