At present the event is able to go ahead, however should the government release any changes that suggest otherwise due to an escalating situation we will have to cancel the event.  This page will be updated accordingly as well as our Facebook page.


There are car parks on site at both Woodside and King George V.  Timberlake car park is nearby to Knutsford Playing Fields as well as some unregulated streets in the nearby industrial estate.

There are Beryl bike bays near to all locations should you wish to hire a bike. More information on the Beryl bike scheme can be found here.

Social distancing

Social circles will be marked on the field to encourage social distancing. However it will remain your responsibility to adhere to the current government guidelines.  It is not possible to reserve social circles and they are operated on a first come first serve basis.  A maximum of 6 people are permitted within each circle.

Unfortunately we can’t control the weather! You are permitted to bring mini beach shelters or umbrellas to seek shade from the sun (or rain!) However these will not be permitted for use if it is very windy.  Where possible you may be asked to move towards the back of the site if your shelter is obstructing the view of others.  Our screenings will only be cancelled if weather conditions make the event dangerous e.g extremely high winds.


There will be rubbish bins on site so please respect our parks and use the bins, or if they are full take your rubbish home with you.
