Now Northwich 2022

Northwich Town Centre & Barons Quay, 11.30am – till late

 

Now Northwich is BACK to bedazzle the streets of the town centre and Barons Quay with a resplendent programme of dance and street arts to astound and enthrall both young and old. A FREE day and night for all the family, the festival returns with another vibrant treat for the eyes and ears. From multisensory experiences to masterful puppetry and mind-blowing installations, Now Northwich ’22 will fuse fantastic sights and stimulating sounds in some of the most unforgettable performances around.

Until now, COVID has kept us away – but on 30th April we return; bigger and bolder than ever with 18 performance and installation pieces by 11 different companies (4 more than 2019).  More than 8 different sites will be alive with acrobatics, dance, street shows and more.

There’s a specially commissioned Northwich community film screening on a loop, 6 hours of live local music, no less than FIVE parading pieces from two of our companies PLUS a 3-day showstopper.  This year, lovers of Now Northwich can spread out to savor the experience safely, fully, in their own time and even socially-distanced.

This year, stumble upon EKO the sea-giant, meander through a honey-perfumed bee colony, step inside a floral biodome and be mesmerised by mythical migrating birds. There’ll be flamboyant dance riots with acro, urban, Brazilian and African twists, drum-tastic performances, immersive experiences and even journeys to the moon. This year’s Now Northwich will make you question what’s right before your eyes, putting into perspective ‘the world’ as you know it.

It’s going to be majestic, quirky and at times, a tad surreal. It’s Now Northwich; anything can happen.

 

Expect the unexpected – you won’t be disappointed

30th April 2021, open 11.30am – 10pm.
