Cholmondeley Pageant of Power

Where: Cholmondeley Castle, Malpas, Cheshire, UK

When: July

According the event’s organisers, the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power is an enthralling mix of speed, skill and sheer bravery, and promises to be a pageant that is a celebration of all things speedy on land, air and in the water. The majority of the action takes place on a specially built 1.2 mile race track, while the Deer Park Mere will host the largest gathering of inshore racing power boats in the UK. The air isn’t ignored either, as demonstrations from the Breitling Wingwalkers, the RAF and over 150 privateers are due to please onlookers.

One of the highlights of 2010 was the military combat power assault demonstration, and this year’s demonstration promises to be bigger and better than last year.

The event Trade Village offers shopping potential, with the Lifestyle Pavilion offering various luxuries and a range of local produce and real ales can be enjoyed in the Paddock Bar.

The event culminates in a Firework and Military Tattoo Concert on the Saturday evening, which will feature performances from the Manchester Camerata, Mossley Brass Band and the Band and Drums of the 4th Battalion Mercian Regiment. The concert is being held in support of military charity, Combat Stress.
