Organisers Derek and Julie Millington show 'em how it's done at the FAB Festival
Over the years the Middlewich FAB Festival has always provided a wide range of entertainment above and beyond what is normally found at traditional folk festivals; the aim being to cater for the general public and those not necessarily too interested in the folk world.
The Middlewich Rock 'n' Roll Dancers are a case in point. They're hugely popular with the crowds, and rightly so.
They present their version of authentic 1950s Rock 'n' Roll with enthusiasm and style and they always look immaculate in period dress. -Ed (from the Middlewich Diary, 2013)

Derek and Julie Millington write:

Once again,  and for the 14th consecutive year, we are  organising the Rock'n'Roll dancing at the Middlewich FAB Festival.

Watch out for us on Sunday 21st June.

There will be dancers from many parts of the surrounding areas including the Potteries, Manchester, Wilmslow, Chester, North Wales and Liverpool as well as  local dancers from  Middlewich, Sandbach, Crewe and other towns and villages in the area.

The dancers will be dressed in their colourful 1950's Rock 'n' Roll costumes  and will be dancing to authentic 1950's and 60's Rock'n'Roll music and bringing you an impressive display of design, colour and movement.

Outside dance music will provided by our very own Jiving Jim's'  mobile disco.

We will be dancing on the Kinderton House Hotel front car park from  12 noon  until approximately 12.40.p.m., after which we'll move on to the Amphitheatre,   where we'll dance from 1.00.p.m. until 2.00.p.m.

After that we'll be back at the Kinderton House Hotel, where dancing will continue to the group Night Flight.

We look forward to a great afternoon's dancing and a good audience. See you there!
