The Alderley Edge Festival formally started in 1911. From humble beginnings, the Festival has grown into one of the biggest in the country. The Festival is a great example of a tradition that stretches across the years with parents, grandparents and even great-great grandparents sharing memories of taking part when they were children.
Many prestigious trophies and awards are presented at the Festival, all of which have been kindly donated over many years, from its inception to the present day. They contribute historical and lasting value to our Festival and we are most grateful to their generous donors.
Step back in time and take a look at how we did things in the early 1900s.
