Congleton Christmas at CMQ – Coming Soon!

Congleton Jazz and Blues Festival August 25th

The pretty market town of Congleton is well known for its festivals, flowers, beers and bears

Yes bears!

According to legend, the residents of Congleton bought a fighting bear with the money that was initially earmarked to pay for a new bible for the town. Bear baiting was a popular spectator sport in the 1700’s and proved to be a profitable move.

Congleton is set in some of the most scenic countryside around but if walking isn’t your thing you can sit back and relax in one of Congleton’s many cafés and restaurants or try a beer in one of the 29 pubs selling real ale. 

But wait!

Before you take off on your scenic adventure or find your spot to relax, come and browse our newest Artisan Market at CMQ (Congleton Market Quarter), perfectly situated between Princess Street and Mill Street.

We are delighted to announce that we have formed a partnership with the team behind the brand new Congleton Market Quarter!
