Living in Knutsford
Knutsford is a bustling town with a great community feel and a lot to offer. On the first Sunday of every month, from 11am to 4pm, the town hosts one of the biggest artisan markets in the UK. Here you can find fine food, drinks, art, jewellery, gifts and crafts that cater for a variety of tastes. The town also holds a two-day Christmas market in December. Here, over 100 different stalls sell food, drinks, crafts and gifts.
A number of other annual events are also held in Knutsford throughout the year. One of the highlights of the town's calendar is its Royal May Day celebration. The first Saturday in May sees a procession through the town and the crowning of the May Queen - a tradition that first began in 1864. The town's local membership club, Knutsford Lions, is actively involved in a wide variety of community activities, and the Lions Street Fair is held annually, where you can enjoy music, fairground rides, competitions and a wide variety of food and drink stalls.
