Stockport’s Giant Leap Totally Food & Drink Festival


A unique Art Trail featuring giant, brightly coloured frogs is being billed as a Giant Leap for Stockport and will be hopping into the town centre creating an engaging and vibrant, outdoor art trail throughout the summer! The project is designed to increase town centre footfall, to promote Stockport and to support the local youth community – tomorrow’s giant leapers. Find out more and download the art trail map in the centre of this magazine

6th, 7th & 8th September Totally Stockport, Stockport Council, Market Place and Merseyway are working together to present Stockport’s Totally Food & Drink Festival.

Totally Free WiFi Totally Free Wi-Fi is now available in the town centre and is already being enjoyed by over 8,000 visitors who have signed up to the free service. Alongside the Wi-Fi sits another unit that accurately measures footfall and helps provide data on how people are moving around the town, where they are going to and for how long. One of Totally Stockport’s objectives is to increase the amount of time people spend here and increase exposure to Stockport town centre shops and services. This valuable data helps us to shape plans for Totally Stockport’s future projects, addressing areas of concern and hosting events and activities aligned to visitor preferences.
