Going A5 Live!

A new year and Cockfest evolves…

Long term readers will remember the annual music and fun festival that’s taken place on the smallholding just off the A5 at Newtown, Brownhills – formerly called Cockfest (because it took place on a chicken farm).

This year it’s seen some changes and is now called A5 live, and takes place from Friday 4th August to Sunday 6th August 2017, and tickets are now on sale.

  1. As regards to the comments about the new Wesleyan chapel I am old enough to remember the great competition that there was between the two chapels. The Wesley always had their Sunday school anniversary on Easter Sunday and the follow week the repartition. The Mount Zion had theirs the following two weeks, and there was always sporting finally who’s was best. But the biggest completion was always between the two football teams and most times the Mount Zion came out on top. The two main Families at both Chapels were the Wesley had the Fulleloves and the Portsmouth’s. And the Mount Zion had the Bradbury’s and the Craddocks..
