With darker nights and colder temperatures drawing in, visitors to Stalybridge Street Feast will now be able to eat and drink in the Civic Hall.
Tameside Council has taken the steps to expand the seating and entertainment at the monthly event, which has been hugely popular over the summer with thousands coming into the town centre to enjoy the food and drink on offer around Armentieres Square.
Councillor Eleanor Wills, project lead for Stalybridge Street Feast, said: “The weather has been very kind to us so far but we know we can’t count on that continuing as we go through autumn and approach the end of the year.
“That’s why we’re opening up the civic hall. If people want to, they can now enjoy their food and drink warm and dry inside a welcoming venue that dates back more than 150 years and embodies Stalybridge’s long and fascinating history.
“Use of the hall also lets us expand the entertainment on offer. In October, as well as live music, we’ll have a roaming magician and Krafty’s Kids’ Club.”
The next Stalybridge Street Feast will be between 5pm and 9pm on Friday 8 October, when a wide range of stalls, continental-style street food and favourite tipples will be available to the backdrop of live entertainment.
