Fun In A Field For A Fiver: 23 June

Sam-Yarwood

We're looking forward to next weekend's Wrenbury village event: Fun In A Field For A Fiver. The event, held in the field next to The Cotton Arms, will start at 2pm.

The school's performance slot is at 3pm this year and we look forward to sharing with you some fantastic singing and guitarists.

Do come along and enjoy this popular, and growing, Wrenbury event, where the funds raised will be shared amongst a number of village organisations — the school being one.

The following article in the NANTWICH NEWS this week explains the background to the event and what to expect in a little more detail for those of you who have not yet attended:
A group of Wrenbury residents wanted to listen to more live music but were fed up with the rising costs of picnic concerts and the lack of late night trains back from venues in Manchester and Liverpool.
So, back in 2015, we had an idea.
What if we could bring the concert to us — for a reasonable cost?

We contacted local band Wayne and The Hairy Peaches who agreed not only to be our headline act (at no charge) but also to recruit other local musicians to do the same.

We sold wristbands for just £5 which enabled everyone to listen to an eight hour live music concert, for less than the price of a couple of take away coffees.

For those bringing a picnic, there was nothing else to pay, however, as the event was held next to the village pub (the Cotton Arms in Wrenbury) there was an opportunity to buy food and drink and we also ran a barbecue at very reasonable prices.

We had no idea that first year if enough people would come along, if the event would be what people wanted or if the weather would be good — but we needn't have worried, it was yes to all of the above. The first Fun in a Field for a Fiver was a resounding success.

It was never meant as a fundraising event but the profits we have made have been split between The Wingate Centre, Wrenbury School/Pre-School and St Margaret's Church, who all helped to run the event.

This year will be our fourth festival with music from (among others) Mark Gallager, Jack Bridgett, Erika Ignata, Radox and the Bathsalts and of course Wayne and The Hairy Peaches as our headline act from 8:30pm.

If you want to listen to great live music in a local location for a reasonable price, then come along to the field next to The Cotton Arms in Wrenbury from 2pm on Saturday 23rd June and have Fun in a Field for a Fiver.

Base 5 it has been simply wonderful having your lovely faces back in the classroom, all refreshed and eager to learn. We have had a super first week back, filled with fun and obviously lots of learning! We have played maths games- you can see the tension on the children's faces; could they roll the digit they needed or would it lose the game for them? In our English we have begun our own...
