Foden trucks were based in Sandbach from 1856 until about 2006, so it seems very fitting that every year the town celebrates its rich heritage of transport based manufacturing.
The event across the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of April attracts some 20000 visitors and promises to be as good
as ever. A full itinerary can be seen here.
To join in the celebrations, on Sunday we will be serving refreshments to keep the most ardent transport buffs lubricated and ready to haul, with our annual traditional lamb hot-pot (vegetarian options are also available) outside between 12.00 - 4.00pm. We will have our very own static display of vehicles in the pub car park. We've also got the world famous Foden’s Brass Band playing outside the pub between 1.30 - 2.30pm .... a spectacle to behold, so please pop down.
On both days there will be a number of free rides for the younger visitors in Sandbach Park, a music festival on the Cobbles, a full scale replica WW2 Spitfire fighter plane, walk about T-Rex dinosaurs and several other events around the town .... so a weekend for your diary.
We hope to see you then, cheers!
Chris and the Old Hall crew.
