Well, it’s all done and dusted, they’re setting up and Brownhills is ready for it’s first music festival in decades. It’s going to be a grand day out for all at The Shire Oak pub, with great music, beer and good company throughout from 12 noon Saturday, 17th August 2013.
Parking is available on the Shire Oak School site at a flat cost of £3 per car. Paul Green, organiser, had this to say:
We would prefer you to leave your car at home but if this isn’t possible there is parking arrangements made with Shire Oak School. It’s a couple of hundred metres away but its there if you need it. As we’ve had to insure the site for public liability and pay for the gates to be opened and closed, there will be a £3.00 charge for parking. Gates are open from 11am
I would ask all residents to enter into the spirit and remember, this event is for one day only, so please, be tolerant. I wish Paul and everyone else behind this fine, charitable event well. You’ve worked very hard indeed – thanks.
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, but if you register with Eventbright on the link below you may still bag some returned places. These are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Registration is a completely on-line process and only requires a name and email address.
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.
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?
