One of our flagship events, this 5 day festival celebrates the town’s rich salt heritage and the historic charter granting Royal Consent for an annual fair and weekly market.
Beginning with the reading of the Charter which talks about the town’s historic and industrial past, the celebrations really begin with the Royal Charter funfair, exhibitions, troupe dancing, local bands, art exhibitions – the list goes on!
Join us for the crowning of the new Salt Queen or enter the competition to win a trip down Britain’s deepest and oldest salt mine right here in the heart of Winsford!
Wander down to the magnificent new Marina and marvel at the colourful spectacle of up to 50 narrowboats moored in readiness for Sunday’s Salt Regatta. Perhaps even join us at a unique Open Air Church Service on the floor of the dodgem unit at the funfair!
