COMPETITION DETAILS FOR DAY 3 CAN BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE It’s been a tough year for everyone in Stockport, with our town placed under the strictest restrictions for the majority of 2020. Stuck in Tier 3 for the next few weeks at least, unfortunately things don’t look like improving any time soon. Here at The Viaduct, we’d love to make life better for Stopfordians if we could, but we can’t let you go and have a few beers on the Market. Or pop over to Redrock to catch a film.

I don’t know if that’s because the most exciting thing that’s happened to me in 2020 has been having a pizza delivered to my front door, or the fact that the summer of 2019 was so bloody wonderful. In any case, 2019 was ace. Oh, it really was. Culminating with Blossoms’ sold-out Edgeley Park gig in June, which was the perfect ending to an incredible couple of months. The gig, and all the build-up, is the subject of a new documentary which came
