I look forward to welcoming all the performers and audiences to Rochdale, for what is set to be our best ever festival.”
Event Manager Debbie O’Brien, from Rochdale Town Centre Management added:
“The Rochdale Feel Good Festival has grown to become one of the biggest events in the borough, and I would like to thank the council and our sponsors for their support.”
