Events took place at a range of venues across the Town Centre and at the Heritage Centre. Young people enjoyed a variety of workshops at a range of venues. Attendance exceeded expectations and all the young people seemed to have had a tremendous time.

Crewe’s own Whitby Morrison provided an open air ice cream van museum, Noisy Toys entertained folk in Victoria Square, Wheels in Motion provided some fun activities on Market Square including a go-kart race track. Live performances took place from the Coop Woodwind Band and from Dirty Clide.

A range of community and commercial organisations were actively involved including Crewe Can, the St Paul’s Centre, the UTC South Cheshire College, Police, Fire, the Red Cross, Virgin Trains, Mornflake, MMU, Bentley, Mums in the Know, Cheshire East, Crewe Transport Festival, The Bulb, Crewe Lyceum Theatre and Everybody Leisure.

The Council wishes to thank all those involved for their support in staging the event and also to thank the people of Crewe for turning out in force over the weekend.
