THE second Fiesta on the Field event will be an important one for the Middlewich Cricket Club as the chairman stated that they are ‘reliant on fundraising’.

The inaugural event took place last year and was a success for the club and now plans for the second, which is called 'All Out', are now in place.

The festival will take place from Saturday, July 13 to Sunday, July 14 with a variety of entertainment for visitors.

David Parry, chairman of the cricket club, said: “The club has been seriously struggling to make ends meet and we had become totally reliant on the fundraising at our annual bonfire and fireworks event in November.

“All our funds are ploughed back into the upkeep of the clubhouse and ground as well as equipment for the junior teams.

“Without this investment it would not be possible to maintain the playing of cricket at senior or junior levels.

Last year's inaugural summer event was discussed early in the year.

“After a massive effort by the committee, club members and volunteers we were able to organise and deliver a hugely popular and successful event.

“This was based around a beer festival with live music on Saturday evening followed by a large outdoor cinema screening on Sunday. Clearly the fantastic weather played its part in making it so successful.

“We decided that we had to follow up on that first event and started planning early this time.”

The schedule for 2019 is the same with the beer festival on Saturday starting at 6pm after the second Middlewich cricket team’s match.

The outdoor cinema will return on Sunday with the family matinee performance being the remake of 'Dumbo' with gates opening at midday.

Later in the evening, with gates opening at 6pm, there will be a screening of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' with Rami Malek's Oscar winning portrayal of Freddie Mercury.

Food and drink will again be on sale at both screenings.
