Saturday 29th June 2019 – PARTY AT THE ORCHARDS – 1pm til 8pm

Dunham Press Orchards | The Curry Den | Smoke, Fire, Flame BBQ | Beaches of Mcr | Large Covered Barn Available

For a first time event The Party at The Orchards worked amazingly well last year and we’re extremely pleased Chris Hewitt at Dunham Press Cider has been happy to host again for this year.

We’ll be in the middle of one of Chris’ orchards in Dunham Massey but expect a CASK and KEG beer bar, lots of CIDER, STREET FOOD and MUSIC by Beaches of Mcr. After a top BBQ show at our January Brewtap we’ve got Smoke, Fire, Flame BBQ on the guest list.

Final food & drinks confs are now in with the Little Red Pizza Co bringing their wood fired pizza oven along and the guys from Extreme Coffee bringing along they’re finest roasts…

For the kids (& big kids) we’ll have the best locally produced Ice Cream in the area onsite from Dunham Massey Farm Ice Cream. They’ll be heading down from their newly refurbished Ice Cream Parlour. There’ll also be bouncy castles and lots of wide open space.

The best things about the location is it’s easily accessible yet idyllic. We thought getting there might pose a problem last year but lots of people hit the canal and Bridgewater Way by bike and foot, jumped on the bus (CAT5 or CAT5A from Altrincham) or grabbed a taxi. We managed to get nearly 200 people there and everyone really enjoyed the day.

Everyone involved has young families and we’re all local to Altrincham. Our own BrewTaps have gone this way naturally to an extent so we’d love you to make this a family day out. If you’ve never been to the Dunham Press Orchards there’s lots to see and you’d be amazed it’s all so close to home.

***If it’s not for some reason a scorcher like last year we have a large covered barn area available and can move the event indoors if absolutely necessary****

Venue address: Dunham Cider Press, Boundary Farm, Sawpit Street, Altrincham, WA14 5SJ.

To cover the various amenities, services and accesses we’ll need to provide for the day we’ll be ticketing this event. Pre-booked tickets are priced at £7.50 per Adult. This includes any one drink from either bar on the day which you can get on production of your named event ticket.

Other then that you can turn up on the day and pay £5 on the gate. No drink will be included with this option.

It’s free entry for children.

Dogs are welcome so long as they’re kept on leads around the event venue and orchard walks. Outside of that there’s loads of places around about for dog walkers.

Onsite (overnight) parking will be available.

If you’ve any questions or require further information please don’t hesitate in getting in touch on 07730 515251 via social media or just email
