LIVE music, daredevil stunts and supercars are just a small taste of what's on offer for families and petrolheads at a new festival coming to the county.

Later this year, the inaugural Cheshire Festival of Power will be taking place at the 50-acre Ashley Hall Showground in Ashley.

Over two days (August 27 and 28) a host of arena entertainment will thrill and enthrall visitors to the festival.

Bolddog Lings FMX Team - the UK's top freestyle motocross display team - will be headlining and promise to keep audiences on the edge of their seats with daring stunts, heart-stopping tricks and non-stop aerial action 35ft up.

The festival also boasts a stellar music line-up with two nights of live performances on the main stage.

Ahead of the August festival date there is a chance to enter a car raffle to have the chance of winning a Porsche 911 worth £90,000.

Cheshire Festival of Power managing director, Sir Peter Grainger, said: “Since we announced the new Cheshire Festival of Power we’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction from the public – there’s a real appetite out there for what is going to be a great, family-friendly August Bank Holiday weekend.

“The whole team has worked hard to bring together a programme of high-quality events and attractions that together will make the Festival of Power an unmissable two days of exhilarating entertainment.

“In addition to that, we’re also delighted to be able to offer such a stunning raffle prize for one lucky festivalgoer who will be able to roar into September behind the wheel of one of the great, iconic sports cars of the last 50 years.”
