Knutsford Town Mayor releasing Charity Ball Tickets

There is less than one month to go until Town Mayor Cllr Mike Houghton holds a Charity Ball to raise funds for Knutsford Scouts and the UK Men’s Sheds Association, his chosen charities for the year.


The Winter Wonderland Ball, which this year is being held at Cottons Hotel, will take place on Friday 25th November. The ball is the Mayor’s biggest fundraising event of the year and promises to be a glamorous and fun filled evening with entertainment from DJ Pete Deane and a close up magician.


Cllr Houghton said “Please accept this as my invitation to each of you to all to come along and join me for an evening of good food and great entertainment. I hope to raise enough money on the night to help to secure the future of two important groups in Knutsford, both of which promote positive mental health within our community.”


Tickets are available for the night at £65 per person for a delicious 3-course meal, arrival drink and entertainment.  To book your place you can contact the Civic Events Officer Michelle Bate  on 01565 653929 or email Get your tickets this week or you might miss out!

Mayor to host Pub Quiz

The Mayor of Knutsford is inviting residents to his fun pub quiz on February 23rd at The Angel on King Street. After 2 years of hosting Zoom quizzes, Cllr Gardiner will be the first Mayor since 2019 that has been able to hold the annual event in person and is encouraging all who are able to come along.

Cllr Gardiner is keen to welcome as many people as possible to get involved and especially those who were unable to celebrate Christmas with their colleagues. The Quiz presents the perfect opportunity for postponed get together while raising some much-needed funds for the Royal British Legion and St Vincent de Paul Society.

Cllr Gardiner said: “ Are you an ace at The Chase, sharper than a celebrity on pointless or quicker on the buzzer than a student on University Challenge? Then why not put your brain to the test and bring a team along to the Annual Town Mayor’s Quiz and see if you can outsmart this year’s quiz master?!’

The quiz, which has been written by the Mayor’s Consort, Simon Hutchence, will take place at 7.30pm. Teams are £10 for a team of 4 which supports the mayor’s chosen charities.  Extra participants can pay £2.50 per person, but teams will be capped at six people.

To register your team contact Michelle Bate on with the details of your team – including a team name and the names of all participants.
