The annual Harfest music festival will return to Altrincham this month with all proceeds being donated to Reverse Rett. The event is organised by the team at Alty Market who support Rett research in honour of Kitt, the daughter of owners, Nick Johnson and Jenny Thompson.
The event will last from Friday September 21st to Sunday 23rd and the music acts will be spread across the Main Stage, in New Market Square, the Stage of Straw on Shaw’s Road and on the original Stage of Straw in the Covered Market.
The stages are set to welcome acts including 6 Music DJ Mark Radcliffe’s Galleon Blast, Victor and Kyla Brox, Gondwana Records Caoilfhionn Rose, Liberty Ship, Gypsies of Bohemia, Gideon Conn, South Island Sun, Martin Connor & The Soul Apostles and many more.
Although the music festival will be free, there are some special paid-for events that will also help fundraise, including discos, dinners, creative workshops, breakfasts, treasure hunts, and ‘The Great Alty Bake Off’.
