22/23 April for 

The SpareParts Festival



SpareParts Festival is on the move, exploring what future journeys might look like through combining stupendous arts with transport themes, and featuring the Great SpareParts Parade. 


Visitors will be treated to fantastic Street Art Performers and amazed by urban explorers performing on and around a fictional STEAM train and the URBAN ASTRONAUT flying high into the sky, plus a whole host of workshops that all ages can enjoy.

Running from 10am to 6pm the festival will offer performances, workshops and the Great SpareParts Parade on Sunday 23 April starting at 3.45pm from Sandbach Fire Station.

Adam McGuigan, Artistic Director at SpareParts Festival, said: “We’re delighted to bring SpareParts to a whole new audience in Sandbach.

“The festival features a whole host of fantastic performances that we’re sure audiences will love and that blend beautifully with the existing Sandbach Transport Festival.”


The festival will also visit Crewe’s trAction Festival on 8 & 9 July and Fleetwood Festival of Transport on 16 July.

The SpareParts festival, which was originally developed in Fleetwood, is funded through Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring programme, bringing together the best of transport themed arts from around the world.
