Dates announced for 2012 Cholmondeley Pageant of Power

The organisers of the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power have confirmed that next year’s Pageant will take place from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 June – a month earlier than the event’s usual July slot.

The Pageant takes place on the Cholmondeley Estate in Cheshire, and the motorsport event celebrates power and performance in its many forms.  In 2012, the fifth year of the event, the Pageant will feature a range of new displays on land, water and in the air, a theme for the motoring content and a series of mini-events in the build up to the Pageant itself.

“Every Pageant has been a remarkable success and we’ve seen year-on year increases in visitor numbers, sponsors, exhibitors and the number of displays and attractions,” explains James Hall, Event Director at the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power.  “This year we also added an additional day to pack it all in.  The Pageant has grown very fast, but one element that has remained constant throughout the first four years has been the poor weather.  Analysis of the last 10 year weather patterns show that in this region, July has been a third wetter than June and so the decision has been made to bring the event forward a month.”
