The Brit Fest 2024- Review

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a huge music fan, so it was great to be invited to attend The Brit Fest last weekend in Cheshire.

I was lucky enough to bring along my best friend and my 10-year-old daughter, who are both big music lovers.

The Brit Fest was held at Ashley Hall and Showgrounds, a 100-acre festival site in Altrincham (less than a 10-minute drive from the centre of Altrincham.) The location was stunning, and it also catered for people traveling by public transport with the offer of free buses from the local area to the festival site.

There was the option to camp or glamp, or to simply enjoy the festival on a more casual basis, and the option of general or V.I.P tickets.

The line-up over the 3 days was fantastic, with artists on the main stage including.

Friday- Cast, Scouting for Girls and Dodgy

Saturday- Kim Wilde, Bonnie Tyler and The Real Thing

Sunday- Fleur East and Heather Small.

I’m a huge fan of 80s music, so I was so excited about Saturday’s line-up, it took me back to my childhood, especially since my step-dad is a Paul Young fan (another legend who was on stage). What was so endearing was my daughter’s reaction to hearing and seeing Kim Wilde for the first time. It took me back to being her age and my obsession with Kim as a child.

The night sky lit up during Kim’s set, followed by a rainbow, and it was truly magical.

As well as the main stage, there was also the ABC stage, which played host to local artists. We loved the choir and their fabulous bright outfits!


As a mindset and wellbeing coach, I was excited to see what was on offer from the Mindful Meadow area. My friend and I took part in the sound healing class which was the perfect calm break from the music stage.

I actually felt quite stressed/overwhelmed on that particular day, and came away from the class feeling much more relaxed and present. It was one of my favourite activities from the festival.

Family Friendly

The Brit Fest was so family-friendly, with everything from rides to hook-a-duck to cool jewellery and clothes stalls, not to mention some free sweets!

Food and Drink

There were plenty of food and drink options and my daughter, who has a dairy intolerance, was well catered to at the Anna Loka vegan food vendor who had a very affordable 100% vegan menu. She decided to try the vegan mac & cheese, which came with the option of some free crispy vegan bacon on the side. It was delicious, creamy and generously portioned.

Other food options included pizza, hot dogs, gyros and lots more. The coffee on offer was from a company called Extreme coffee, and honestly, it was up there with one of the best coffees that I have ever tried! My friend and I were raving about it for a good while after finishing our drinks.


The atmosphere was fun, friendly and inclusive. My daughter suffers from tinnitus and mild hearing loss, so we found a comfortable spot a bit further away from the stage where we could still hear perfectly well and see everything via the stage and the big screen on offer. Although she did venture to the front a few times during Kim Wilde’s set!

We had such a fantastic time, and we can’t wait to come back next year!
