ALTRINCHAM is building up for its second French Festival, with organisers hoping to build on the success of last year.

This year’s event is due to take place on July 13 and like last year will be held in Stamford Park.

Festival organisers are keen to hear from French-themed merchants, performers, food and drink sellers and vintage car enthusiasts who wish to take part.

Commercial support is also being sought for the day.

Festival organiser, Zainul Sachak said: “We had such a great success last year and I had so much positive feedback from everybody, we felt we had to repeat the festival.

“As well as it being some great French themed family entertainment, it is a distinct opportunity to put Altrincham on the map.”
