CarFest North - a motoring show organised by Chris Evans - set for Cholmondeley this weekend
CarFest North, one of two shows organised by DJ and Ferrari fanatic Chris Evans, will be held at Cholmondeley Castle, a venue already well known to north west petrolheads due to its annual Pageant of Power motorsport event.
The DJ and petrolhead said: "CarFest is my dream of the perfect family festival starring three of my greatest passions – cars, live music and scrumptious food.
"CarFest South which took place a week and a bit ago was just utterly awesome and, from the moment it opened, took on a whole brand new personality of its own. And the best news is, we now get to do it all over again at Cholmondeley Castle."
The event, which is being held to help raise funds for BBC Children In Need, will not only feature exotic cars and motorsport machines, but performances from bands too, with Texas headlining on Saturday, September 8 and Razorlight playing the main performance the following day.
The show follows a similar event held last month, CarFest South, which drew in thousands of spectators when it was held at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire. Although the main tickets have already sold out for CarFest North, a limited number are still available via the event's website at www.carfest.org.
