Get set for Cockfest 2016!


So much going on and such great, friendly people.

Here’s a really, really great thing happening on the weekend of Friday 29th – Sunday 31st July 2016 at Newtown, Brownhills – a weekend music and fun festival with proceeds going to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

Cockfest runs over a whole weekend with camping available, and live music on the Friday and Saturday. It’s a great, friendly and warm hearted affair in a field just off the A5 at Newtown, Brownhills. There’s not just music, but food, a licensed bar, campfire and all manner of entertainments and fun…

Organizer Keryl Jenkins had this to say:

This is the third year of Cockfest, and I can’t wait as this year is going to be better than ever!

The humbling part for me is how our team of volunteers have grown from last years success and how the local community has really stepped up to support us.

Cockfest is more than just a music festival, it’s a gathering of like minded charitable people raising money for a popular charity available to everyone.

A weekend pass is £30 for adults and just £5 for kids under 16, and day passes are £20 and £3 respectively. Under 5s go free! You can book tickets by calling Kez on 07966 611170 or by visiting the event’s Facebook page here.

This is a very professionally run event now in it’s third year and some of the bands look terrific – and it’s for charity so what’s not to love?

It’s apparently called “Cockfest’ because it’s on a chicken farm…


Some great local bands performing, and in memory of popular local man Carl Findon-Kent who sadly passed away last year.
