Ark in the Park was a teriffic fun day for dog lovers, with rosettes being awarded in a variety of classes, such as prettiest dog in Congleton (female of course), dog with the waggiest tail, most obedient and many more.

The show was hotsted very ably by David Bass from Oscars Pet Food, and above you can see some of the dog owners waiting for the decision of the judge. Also present was the famous 'Dogfather' Vic Barlow, who demonstrated with his dogs, and offerred superb advice for owners.

FoCP Stand at Brass on the Grass in 2014

Do brass bands have a weather God? Well maybe! This was a fantastic event, with several hundred people of all ages enjoying great music and lovely weather; the day before and the day after saw torrential rain!

The event was organised by Friends of Congleton Park in conjunction with Congleton Town Council, Cheshire East Council and Cheshire Borders Independent.

Ken Williams from the Friends said; “We want to give Congleton a lovely afternoon of music and have booked some great local brass bands. Macclesfield's Silk Brass Band and Rode Hall Silver Band will be performing along with The Can’t Sing Choir, U3A Ukulele Group and Salt City Jazz Men. A super-line up to grace any music event!” .........Read more, download a single page pdf.

Most years we are involved to a greater or lesser degree with events in the Park. Family fun days with a variety of attractions for all ages are often seen during Summer months. We also like to see local young talent encouraged, for example local bands playing their music to a live audience.
