Brownhills Music Festival 2013 – Not far away


Hopefully, the first of many

It’s getting closer. The Brownhills Music Festival will be taking place throughout the day at The Shire Oak pub, Shire Oak crossroads, Brownhills (or Walsall Wood if you please), next weekend on Saturday 17th August 2013. This looks to be a great event, and I’ve watched carefully as the organiser of this brave and groundbreaking project, local lad Paul Green, has carefully and expertly built up a profile, fixed up acts and dealt with public enquiries.


A great pub set to host a great musical event.

There will be something for everyone, and it all takes place around and inside a great local pub with excellent ale and friendly locals. The whole thing is a free affair, and Paul has worked tirelessly to make his vision a reality.

Although the event is free to attend, you do need to register for tickets. Demand has been high, so register with Eventbright on the link below and you’ll be allocated tickets on a first come, first served basis. I am assured more will be released as the festival gets closer, so if you’re on the list, don’t despair!

Registration is a completely on-line process and only requires a name and email address.

Register for your ticket to Brownhills Music festival here.

The event will also be raising cash for UK Forces Support which is an excellent and important charitable cause. There will be programs to purchase, and other goodies onsite.


There are some great acts playing. And all for free!

Note that at 8pm (20:00H), the Samantha-Jayne Band are playing. I saw this very talented saxophonist playing on Sunday at the Our Big Gig shindig in the Arboretum, and she really was a classy, accomplished act. It’ll be worth going just to see Samantha, let alone all the other great musicians.

You could do worse than buy a festival shirt. What’s not to love?
