Get set for surprises around every corner in Northwich as the hugely successful family-friendly, International Dance & Street Art Festival returns for a second year. From Weaver Way to Witton Street and Barons Quay, the thoroughfares of this old salt town will transform into a stage on which a cast of thrilling local and international artists will perform alongside talented community groups and schools.

Feel the energy erupt as dancers, acrobats and street performers bring the town centre to life with a real treat for the ears and eyes. Whether you choose to sit and watch performers take over the streets, stand and stare at super-sized puppets, move to mesmerising music or role-play in a magical world, this colourful extravaganza of sound and movement will let you spectate and participate in equal measure.

As night falls and the climax approaches, join the dancing crowds that will accompany a procession through the town. Last year, the centrepiece was a group of life-sized dinosaurs. This year… you’ll have to wait and see. One thing’s for sure though, ‘expect the unexpected’. After all, this is Now Northwich!
