Do you like Pina Coladas or getting caught in the rain? Northwich will host its first ever Pina Colada festival this Saturday in celebration of both the tropical cocktail and former resident Rupert Holmes, who penned the song “Escape (The Pina Colada Song”) which saw worldwide acclaim in the 70’s.

The event is borne out of a viral facebook post by lockdown quiz host Tom Barrow, who suggested that the town should pay tribute to one of the towns most acclaimed hitmakers. Featuring live performances across the town, with alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions of the cocktail served across the town, the event hopes to become a Northwich mainstay in coming years.

Saturday August 21 – 1:00 PM11:00 PM
