Visitors packed into Nantwich town square for the popular Societies Spectacular event on Saturday 21st July 2018.

Local groups and societies opened up stalls to promote what they do to a large audience in an event organised by Nantwich Town Council.

The annual day is popular in helping clubs and societies recruit new members and volunteers and publicise the great causes they work towards.

Around 30 organisations had members on stalls talking to visitors and those interested in joining or finding out more.

There were plenty of activities and demonstrations on offer too – as diverse as photography, amateur dramatics, arts and crafts, fitness and cinema.

The mayor of Nantwich, Cllr David Marren, and deputy mayor of Nantwich, Cllr Arthur Moran, took time to visit each stall.
