Hit the Beech
No Chorlton summer is complete without Beech Road’s Family Fun Day, which takes place on Sunday 5 July 2015.
The event will feature the usual quirky and eclectic blend of dancing, circus skills, great food and laid-back picnic options. Money raised goes towards making Beech Road Park a nicer place for everyone.If you’d like to sell your wares or services in the park on the day, you can rent a pitch from just £40 for 3m x 3m. If you’re a performer who could donate your talents, our very good friends at Beech Road Traders would also love to hear from you – Contact Beech Road Traders

We’re working with Beech Road Traders to create a free map that will list all the best and brightest Chorlton businesses. It will help residents, visitors and newcomers know the area better, find some hidden gems and understand just why we all love to call M21 home. The map will be not only be distributed in Chorlton, but also in the city centre and surrounding areas. The print run is 30,000.
If you’d like your business to be listed, there are a number of different options. If you’re a home-based business, or run a market stall, a limited number of contact listings are just £45, but you’ll need to be quick. If you have premises that need to be marked on the map, rates start at £70. And because we want it to be a thing of beauty, the brilliant Anna Violet will be illustrating it. If you’d like to commission Anna to really put you on the map with a bespoke sketch of your premises, the rate is £200.
The traders associations have a very big job to do, so if you’d like to be included, get in touch by Tuesday 7 April. If you’re not already a member, you’ll need to join either Chorlton Traders, or Beech Road
