FAB FESTIVAL WEEKEND at MIDDLEWICH NARROWBOATS (ARCHIVED)
by Cliff Astles
The proprietors of the successful Middlewich holiday company MIDDLEWICH NARROWBOATS have certainly taken the FAB Festival this weekend to their hearts.
The Canal Terrace boatyard and the canal side (off Lewin Street, opposite the British Legion) have both been extensively enhanced, using a VERY BIG ARMY PARACHUTE, should there be rain (it covers most of the boatyard), in keeping with the local tradition of making the FAB Festival a great success for residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being the OFFICIAL SPONSOR to this year's Festival Guide the firm will be offering many attractions for ALL of the family, with the NEW FAB STAGE for entertainers.
