New Year's Eve in Stockport in 2013/ 2013 - discovering the roots of hatting

Historically considered as part of Cheshire, Stockport lies at the confluence of the rivers Goyt and Tame, only 10 km southeast of the city of Manchester. With a population of about 136,000 residents, Stockport is the largest settlement of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport. The New Year's Eve in Stockport in 2012/ 2013 will mean discovering the roots of silk weaving and hatting in Europe.

Located on elevated ground on the river Mersey, Stockport is home to one of Europe's biggest brick structures - the Stockport Viaduct, a major feat of Victorian engineering, dating back to the mid-19th century. The town's industrial past is also brilliantly illustrated in the UK's only hat museum - the “Hat Works”. Visitors coming to spend the New Year's Eve in Stockport in 2012/ 2013 will also have the possibility of experiencing special moments in St. Mary's Church on the Market Place with six centuries of history behind it. The place is home to a wide range of local nature reserves as well, such as the Abney Hall Park or Happy Valley, which, together with the excellent quality restaurants and highly popular clubs and pubs, will be a sure attraction for all tourists.
