Sandbach Transport Festival

Sunday 14 April

Join us for a packed programme of live entertainment, arts, and, of course, some of the UK’s finest new and vintage vehicles, and the return of the Spitfire, at the 29th Sandbach Transport Festival.

On Sunday the SpareParts Festival will be back in Sandbach Park with performances and experiences to delight visitors both big and small alike.

Starting at 10.30am and running right through the day, explore what happens when transport and art collide.

Watch out for our walkabout artists popping up around Sandbach Park and The Commons  – you never know where they could be!

Programme

Sandbach Park

Get comfy on giant beanbags and contemplate the clouds whilst listening to a daughter’s journey with her father across Route 66.

Immerse yourself in an ever changing view where even the most seemingly featureless skies provide plentiful material… Then take a look in Gobbledegook’s converted horse trailer — a museum of the sky, which holds a library of clouds and artefactMs from cloud gazing and gazers around the world.

Sam has 24 hours to clear out his grandad’s old bike workshop.  He remembers grandad teaching him to ride (and pretending to be his favourite superhero, Bicycle Boy). It seems grandad may have left Sam a present somewhere in the workshop, and some clues to find it. But there’s no power and Sam needs electricity to unlock the clues. Can you help him?

If we can connect up enough bikes and pedal like mad we can generate enough power for Sam’s journey. Join us for a musical adventure (and be prepared to help pedal power the performance).

Clear the runway, folks— it’s Roger Blighty, with Betsy Blue the biplane bicycle! It looks like a plane, it sounds like a plane, but the only thing that’s REALLY up in the clouds is Roger’s head…

Prepare to be amazed at how far Roger has gone to make his fantasy a reality; is he really a magnificent man with a flying machine, or just ‘plane’ deluded

A trip around the world starts with just one stroke of the pedal…

Wonderful for all ages, Trixie and Tilly love all things vintage and a jolly good adventure as they dance and navigate their way across the landscape on bicycles. They may just need your help to find their way!

Come and see an early flying machine with touches of Mad Max and Leonardo da Vinci for good measure.

Set in an imagined future dystopia full of bizarre characters trying to regain the magic of flight, this underworld of crazy contraptions is inspired by 19th century theatre sideshows.
