FAB Festival 2018 – FAB Fringe locations


Middlewich Town Council has officially revealed the FAB Fringe locations for this year’s FAB Festival, taking place from 15th-17th June 2018.

As well as the main event, featuring Peter Hook and The Light on Friday evening, the event will also see various artists performing at official fringe locations across Middlewich.

Whilst enjoying a meal or a few drinks, visitors are welcome to attend the free performances taking place at a number of different venues.

Organisers are keen point out that by going to these gigs, people not only support the artists but also the local venues as well.

This year’s FAB Fringe locations are: The Big Lock, The Boars Head, The Kings Lock, Newton Brewery Inn, The White Bear, Middlewich Royal British Legion and the Narrowboat Inn.

Each location offers a different experience with different artists performing throughout the day.

Dave Thompson, FAB Festival and events organiser for Middlewich Town Council, commented: “The FAB Fringe is the backbone of this festival so we are very excited to announce this year’s venues. The fringe gigs are a collection of diverse live music – what’s not to like?”

Dave added: “We would like to thank all the artists and venues for their support and we hope they get a lot of support in return!”

Jonathan Williams, Middlewich town clerk said: “Middlewich opens its doors to visitors from near and far over the festival weekend, and we know from their feedback that the official fringe venues benefit from the promotion and extra income that Middlewich FAB Festival brings into the town.

“They put on some wonderful artists and it’s great to see both our local community and visitors supporting our official fringe venues.”

Middlewich FAB Festival is growing every year and this year’s edition promises to be even better.

The festival will include a floating market as well as fabulous food and plenty of activities for kids.

Concerts taking place on Saturday and Sunday will continue to have free admission.
