The early May Bank Holiday weekend saw the debut of a brand new Poynton Sports Club event that really caught the attention of the village and provided something a little different.
Made in Manchester, hosted and set up by Pitch Productions, transformed the football pitch into a mini festival arena for a long day (and night) of music from top-class Manchester based cover acts and local bands.
The weather threatened to put a dampener on proceedings but held off long enough for the big acts to put on a thrilling show to a lively crowd fuelled by an outdoor Sports Club Bar, Gin Bar and Prosecco… while Burgers, Pizzas, Chicken Wraps & more were on offer throughout the day.
Ticket sales topped 1000 with proceeds split between the different sections on the club and of course Ollie’s Army! A brilliant effort for a debut event on a chilly Sunday in May. The club’s events team are already looking to 2020 to see how we can build on the success so keep your eyes and ears peeled for more info in the coming months!
