The Brewood Music Festival has been one of the focal points of our community for many years and we are delighted at St. Dominic’s to be able to play a part in this year’s event.
Our wonderful school has been home to the festival for a dozen years or so, which is a massive event on the Brewood calendar and proves extremely popular each year.
Certain changes mean we should be able to accommodate between 1,700 and 2,000 visitors this year – an increase on previous capacity numbers – and we are sure the many visitors that will flock to the festival will enjoy the experience.
We are immensely proud of our facilities at St. Dominic’s and are pleased that we have been able to help out in this way.
The festival runs from Thursday, July 12 to Sunday, July 15 and while much of the early entertainment will be going on at various venues around the village, St. Dominic’s becomes the focus for festival-goers on the Saturday and Sunday.
Headline acts The Osmonds and Big Country are a big draw this year on the Saturday and will be supported by Sugarthief and Rainbreakers. The Osmonds became global stars in the 1970s and will feature brothers Jay and Merrill here at Brewood.
Sunday bands include local acts The Heavy Beat Brass Band from Birmingham, Fat Man Alley from Bishop’s Wood and The Icon from Penkridge. Sunday events will also include entertainment for children, a craft fair and music workshops.
