The Flying Horse makes it a perfect 10

01 June 2018

Renowned local business The Flying Horse Hotel has thrown its support behind Rochdale Feel Good Festival, sponsoring the main stage for the 10th consecutive year.

Rochdale Feel Good Festival returns on Saturday, 18 August 2018, for a showcase of entertainment, food and culture. There will be lots of family entertainment, the main stage headlined by rock band Feeder, a food and drink court plus live music across indoor venues.

Manager of the town centre pub, Patricia Boothman, said:

"We are delighted to be back again supporting this amazing festival and look forward to showcasing all that The Flying Horse has to offer, not only during the festival but with the warm up events we will be running earlier in the summer too. It's a big team effort working with our staff and the festival organisers on such a big event but we are looking forward to helping deliver another top class festival to be proud of."

'We are very grateful for The Flying Horse's support'

In May 2018, The Flying Horse was named CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) Rochdale, Oldham and Bury Branch Pub of the Year for the 2nd year in a row. The venue is also regarded as one of Rochdale's best live music venues, hosting entertainment every weekend. They also serve traditional homemade food, produced using the finest locally sourced ingredients.

This year marks a decade since The Flying Horse first sponsored the main stage and this week Councillor Janet Emsley, our cabinet member for neighbourhoods, community and culture visited the venue to thank them for the support and check out their plans for 2018:

"Rochdale Feel Good Festival is going from strength to strength and it is incredible to see how it has grown over the years, but it wouldn't have been possible without the support of our sponsors and partners. We are very grateful for The Flying Horse's support over the last 10 years, their input is fantastic in so many ways."
