On our walls you will find fine examples of art and craft by local artists. Many pieces are for sale, and you are welcome to come and peruse at your leisure.
Sorry about the generic nature of this message but you are truly legion!
I’d like you to send me some info describing to me the depth of your musical genius and how well you would be rapturously received at one, both or all three of our unique venues:
Snowgoose Live, Macclesfield
Snowgoose Café Bar, Macclesfield
The Cat & Fiddle, ‘Britain’s Second Highest (in elevation) Pub’, Up on the tops!
If you have links, availability information and some form of pricing structure that you can email me, I shall be eternally indebted to you and might even buy you a pint of the landlords goodly mead, should we, by good fortune meet.
Here’s a little about our very special spaces:
The Snowgoose LIVE is a 320 Capacity Live Music Venue in Macclesfield with Renkus Heinz sound rig with 2x (Hi/Mid/Low) Speakers & 4 Bass Bins – plenty of power through the range. Mics, Drum Mics & Stands, 32 Channel Allan & Heath Desk, 26”/14” Stage with Riser, Full Stage Lighting, Smoke,
4/6 + Monitors.
There’s eclectic electric music to be found here, with everything from punk, funk, reggae & ska to rock, roots and indie (sorry if I’ve left anyone out!).
A fully stocked bar will keep you cool when the choons get hot and, as with The Café Bar, both venue are smack bang in the centre of town!
The Snowgoose Café Bar is more intimate - charmingly urbane and artisan in feel, with a twist of the Swiss Ski Lodge thrown in for good measure.
Here you can find fine wines and hand-pulled real ales, witty conversation and bonkers-folk hiding from the rain and loosening their undyfoldywettygrippers!
Winsomely laid out over three-floors with lots of nooks and crannies, the Café Bar is a perfect venue for itinerant acoustic troubadours and rakish minstrels alike but has also played host to visiting music co-operatives and workshops.
The Cat & Fiddle (our newest acquisition), perched high above Macclesfield and Buxton, is Britain’s second highest alehouse and soon to be home to even more exciting musical shenanigans! With plans afoot to erect an outside performance space as well as separate stages inside. This capacious venue will lend itself out to intimate gigs, right up to bikermongus rock jamborees!
I hope you find this missive of some use and I look forward to your well-quipped and ebullient replies.
Your Servant and humble friend
