Fresh Evening Entertainment at Cholmondeley Power and Speed

VISITORS to this year's Cholmondeley Power and Speed can follow a day of action on land, water and air with a night of beer, food and comedy. On both Friday and Saturday evenings, Cholmondeley will be hosting a beer and food festival for the 1st time, with stand up comedy set to entertain attendees, on Saturday, 11 June 2016.  Stand up comic Adam Rushton will compere the event which will be opened by Dave Jones, as seen on 8 out of 10 cats and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Scotland regular JoJo Sutherland will continue the entertainment before Rahul Kholi, as heard on BBC Jesting About, takes to the stage. The night's headline act will be Ray Peacock who has entertained viewers on shows such as Skins, Dr Who, Not Going Out and Russell Howard's Good News.  While watching the standup show, visitors can enjoy food from a selection of over 30 specialist food stalls and artisan suppliers from wood fired pizza, Mediterranean and traditional English to Thai, Japanese and Tapas. In addition, Hook Norton Brewery will be hosting a beer festival with a selection of over 20 craft beers and ciders from local micro-breweries. Dougherty and Allen will be running the bars across the event site, which will also serve a range of cocktails and mocktails. The wide selection of food and drink will be available to purchase throughout the event, with additional cookery demonstrations and tasting sessions set to take place from 6pm to 10pm on both Friday and Saturday evenings. A public vote will also be held to crown the 'beer of the festival.'  James Hall, event director at Cholmondeley Power and Speed, said:- "We were keen to shake up the evening activities at this year's event and thought a beer and food festival would be a great way to entertain visitors while supporting and celebrating some of the best local food and drink suppliers. Coupled with what is sure to be a thoroughly amusing line up of stand up comedy, we feel that the evening will provide entertainment for the whole family."  Cholmondeley Power and Speed is this year celebrating Supercars:- Past, Present and Future which will include stunning displays and thrilling on-track action. The activity will give attendees the chance to get up close and personal to some of the most powerful, eye catching and revered supercars in the world. The 2016 staging of the event will also feature the inaugural Motorshow Live! Taking place on the Friday, this all new element of Cholmondeley Power and Speed will give car manufacturers the opportunity to demonstrate their latest models on track while enabling guests to test drive in a unique racing environment. Additional features and content on land (on both 2 and 4 wheels), air and water will be announced over the coming weeks, with all elements of the event once again set against the stunning backdrop of Cholmondeley Castle and its beautiful parkland.  Further information and tickets are available at:- CPop.Co.UK for the event at:- Cholmondeley Castle, Malpas, Cheshire.
