Lymm Hall opened its gates to the public for a splendid
picnic in the grounds entertained by music to suit all tastes.
Lymm Concert Band ensemble
entertained the crowds and Amicus - a vocal band from the
Warrington area who performed an exciting Repertoire in 5
part harmony ranging from Gershwin through to Billy Joel and
other popular music.
Jim Hancock compared the evening.
The Cottrill family has lived at Lymm Hall for over 80 years.
The hall was mentioned in the Domesday book but the present
house dates from the 17th century with remodelling in the
19th century including the redesign of the grounds reducing
from 23 acres to now a more modest 10 acres.
The festival started by singing 'Happy Birthday' to Mary
Cottrill, wife of Dr Paul Cottrill.
Many people arrived with chairs, tables, blankets and baskets
of food and wine even some brought candelabras to adorn their
A successful evening enjoyed by everyone, thanks to the Cottrill
family and the festival organisers for allowing everyone to
share the secrets of Lymm Hall and beautiful grounds.
A must for next year's festival.
