Markets are held in Sandbach several times a week, since Queen Elizabeth I awarded a Royal Charter in 1579 for a market to be held in the town, and a fun fair in September.


Sandbach Town Hall hosts many events, including the Community Cinema and Ballroom Comedy Club. The Council also helps sponsor the annual Sandbach Transport Festival, events in Sandbach Park, the award winning Foden's Band, and Sandbach Concert Series.


To promote the town, the Town Council works closely with businesses, Sandbach Traders and Retailers (STAR), Sandbach Partnership, Cheshire East Council, and other local organisations.

Public meetings are held weekly at the Literary Institution where you are welcome to contribute, in areas such as planning, assets and services, and Community and Environment. The Town Council consists of 18 elected members, and is supported by eight staff.


In September 2008, Sandbach Town Council achieved Quality Status from the National Association of Local Councils. In July 2008, the Council succeeded in Sandbach becoming a Fairtrade Town.  This status was renewed in 2014.


Sandbach is a historic market town (see our Town Guide), noted for its Saxon Crosses in the cobbled Market Square, and historic buildings. It hosts several markets on Thursdays and Saturdays, and has a number of interesting specialist shops, and places to eat.
