Typically five evening concerts, September - May: ‘Our venue has enough space to comfortably hold over twice our normal audience of around 40-50 people, so we don't sell tickets in advance. Simply turn up after 7 p.m. (as the artist's practice session ends then) and "pay on the door"’.

'Formed in 1967. In our history, we have performed at many prestigious venues, including numerous civil occasions, and the honour of playing at Royal events. In common with most other bands, players perform entirely in their own free time, and are all proud to represent the Cheshire Constabulary. It's a common ( though understandable) misconception that the members of the band work within the Police Service. Whilst some do, most of our players come from all walks of life.'

‘Formed from Middlewich Town Band after securing sponsorship from the Roberts Bakery in 1980. Since then the band has achieved Championship Section status with many contest successes over the years. The band’s love however, is its concerts and over the years it has forged a reputation as one of the most entertaining concert bands in the United Kingdom with a well-balanced repertoire of classical, traditional and “pop” music.’

‘Formed in 1998 to give members the opportunity to play big band music and help keep the big band sound alive by playing to the local community. Rehearsals were held in Middlewich so the Band was named after the salt towns of Middlewich, Northwich and Nantwich and uses “Witchcraft” as its signature tune ... A traditional big band line-up of saxes, trombones, trumpets and rhythm. The emphasis is on performing high quality jazz and having fun ... If it’s good music then we’ll play it! We’ve played throughout Cheshire at a wide variety of locations, including concert halls, civic and village halls, golf and rugby clubs, marquees and open air venues.’
