Arley Hall Food Festival 'Good to Go'

THE Great British Food Festival is going ahead as planned, at Arley Hall, near Knutsford, Cheshire, and has recently been awarded the Visit Britain:- "We're Good to Go" certification.

The "We're Good to Go" mark shows that the event has implemented Covid-19 Government guidance, and put in place measures to ensure visitor and staff safety. Daniel Maycock, a director from the Great British Food Festival said:- "We are really looking forward to putting on this new, covid compliant, version of our Food Festival, at Arley Hall. The event has been a regular in our summer calendar for a number of years and we can't wait to be back out on the event field."

The event has been modified due to the current climate, with online pre-booking of tickets now required, limited capacity on the event site, a 1 way system around the stands and all traders asked to wear face coverings. Daniel added:- "We wanted to keep as much of the event as possible, but unfortunately some of our regular elements can't work, but we are bringing over 100 amazing food and drink stalls, a chef demo stage, BBQ demos and a live music stage. We will also have some children's entertainment and our popular forager walks; best of all it's all in the open air, with a lovely view of Arley Hall and lake."

Tickets for the event have been reduced in price, due to the limited line up, to just ₤7.50 for adults and ₤2.50 for kids, all tickets must be pre booked and contact details given.

The event is open from 9.30am to 5pm on both the 26 September to 27 September 2020 and tickets are now available on:- GreatBritishFoodFestival.Com, where you can find out more details.

Primary Dance UK launches new scheme for Primary Schools

BURNLEY and Pendle online dance provider Primary Dance UK has launched a new scheme of work for Primary Schools triangulating commercial music, creative lesson plans and interactive videos. The new curriculum uses innovative technology, enabling its professional dance teachers to deliver the lessons and demonstrate the moves virtually through video, which is accessible via an easy to use online platform. The content for this term is 'social distance friendly' and includes:- Street Dance, Cheerleading, Acro Dance (an energetic combo of acrobatic arts, dance and gymnastics). So, children receive the benefits of dance. And at the same time stay safe in their 'bubble.' This academic year will also see Primary Dance U.K.'s 1at online dance competition in collaboration with Burnley School Sports Partnership to raise awareness of the benefits of dance across local Schools. Primary Dance U.K. Founder Sarah Hawthorne said:- "Primary Dance U.K. is committed to enabling every pupil to dance in School, and in these difficult and strange times, pupils need the physical and mental release of engaging dance sessions. Our supporting videos are easy to set up at the front of any classroom or hall with a projector, and pupils can fully engage in the dance lesson while maintaining a safe distance from others."
