Markets

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.

Events

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.

Promotion

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.

Quality

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

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.

Public Consultation on the Future of Sandbach Market Hall

The Market Hall is situated right at the heart of Sandbach Town Centre. It operates as an Indoor Market for just two days a week, housing eighteen small businesses, and is closed for the other five days a week. Last year Sandbach Town Council subsidised the Market Hall at a cost of £20,000. Being empty for most of the time, the solid brick building usually looks cold and uninviting to visitors.

SANDBACH MARKET HALL CONSULTATION


Sandbach Town Council has recently received much criticism over its public
consultation on the future of the Market Hall. The council accepts that the consultation
could have been handled better and going forward is determined to ensure that both
traders and the public are fully engaged in deciding the future of the Market Hall.
