The 2020 Cheadle Arts Festival had been scheduled to take place this month but due to the current coronavirus situation the creative extravaganza had to be cancelled. There are many wonderfully talented artists within our community and we wanted to be able to give them an opportunity to still showcase their talents and so we, at the Times & Echo, have teamed up with Catherine Doel, Kirsty Spittle and Darren Roberts – the volunteers who would have been organising the Open Art Exhibition in Cheadle - to bring the exhibition to our paper instead.

A LARGE scale creative event has been cancelled amid the current coronavirus situation. This year’s Cheadle Arts Festival had set to take place during the month of June, and plans were in place for an enhanced programme to previous years including: an Open Arts Exhibition, a High Street Gallery, and Arts & Crafts Market, a host of participation and learning events, and a full ‘fringe programme of events, to name but a few. However, the volunteer organising team has now taken the difficult decision to cancel the creative extravaganza due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
