In addition, the event will also showcase a real celebration of British culture, the arts, fashion, food and drink, and classic cars – making the festival stand-out as a unique event.
The event was formally announced at a red, white and blue themed showstopping launch in Cheshire last night (Thursday 13 July), wowing guests with plans for what promises to be the festival to attend in 2024.
The launch event took place in Bowdon, Cheshire, just a few miles from the festival site.

Olivier nominated brothers Anthony and Edward Prophet are the organisers behind The Brit Fest.
Anthony and Edward welcomed guests to the launch event alongside the evening’s hosts Jenny Powell and Mike Toolan from Greatest Hits Radio – who will also host the live acts on stage at the main event next year.
The launch featured live performances by Chris Helme, well known as the frontman of 90’s superband The Seahorses.

The Brit Fest Cheshire organisers Anthony and Edward Prophet commented: “We are thrilled to officially reveal plans for The Brit Fest Cheshire 2024 – which promises to the biggest festival this part of Cheshire has seen.
“The Brit Fest Cheshire will celebrate not just music but the very best of British culture, cars, food and drink, fashion, the arts, and some of the most renowned musical entertainment from these shores. The appetite for once again coming together and celebrating has never been stronger, so we want to use this opportunity to gather and shine a spotlight on the amazing talent we have in this country.
“The event will have a strong charity and community focus, and we are working hard with partners to make sure the festival can be as carbon neutral as possible by developing an offsetting programme. We will announce more details as we head towards the event.
“We are excited to welcome festivalgoers to Cheshire, and hope they embrace the event and take the opportunity to join us for a fabulous weekend with their family and friends.”
Jenny Powell and Mike Toolan from Greatest Hits Radio officially launched The Brit Fest Cheshire at the special event in Bowdon.
Greatest Hits Radio presenters Jenny Powell and Mike Toolan added: “What a real honour to officially announce the staggering line-up of live artists and festival bursting with family fun coming to Cheshire in Summer 2024 – just wow!
“We’re already counting down until that sunny weekend in July next year when we can get up on that stage at Ashley Hall and introduce this incredible line-up of live performers to an excited crowd of festivalgoers. And not forgetting the huge programme of family fun and activities to celebrate and showcase everything that is just the best about Britain. We’ll see you there.”
