This year, we’ve teamed up with Macclesfield Town Council to bring you a festive season with a difference. Experience a magical evening mini-projection trail around the town centre, send a message to Macclesfield's Christmas Tree of Light, take part in workshops, talks and family storytelling – then in December enjoy our Advent Shop Window trail.

Join us for a celebration of stories and light.
