"BrierFest" is a new music festival being held over 5th & 6th May 2018 in Brierfield at Walter St Club. It was spawned from an idea when repre­sen­ta­tives from the club (Brierfield WMC) met up with Phil Schofield from Bands & Venues Burnley & Pendle and discussed the possibility of arranging a fundraiser for Pendleside Hospice, something the club had done before but had wanted to make bigger and better.

After mulling over the idea, a date was picked for the May bank holiday weekend and Phil put feelers out to see what bands and artistes would support this event. Initially this was only going to be a one day event but the response was so huge that it was decided to make this into a two day extravaganza.

Bands and artists include Buckshots, Critical Reaction, Quick Fix, Overload, Covered in Punk, Losing Touch, plus many more. It's sure to be a fantastic event and all funds raised are going directly to Pendleside.

Tickets are just £6 per day or £10 for both days and are available to buy from Brierfield WMC, The Commercial, Harle Syke and the butty van "Travel n Bite" at the B&Q car park.
