Review: Bridgnorth Music and Arts Festival

Bridgnorth has been rocking to the sound of live music as a packed 10 days of entertainment takes place in the town.


The Bridgnorth Music and Arts Festival was in full swing and a rock festival proved a highlight. Bands blasted their guitars at The Edgar Davies Ground, home of Bridgnorth Rugby Club, on Saturday.

The show at the rugby ground has been run as part of the festival for the past four years. 

Ian George, who helped organise the event on Saturday said that despite torrential downpours, the show had its best turn-out to date.

Bridgnorth-band Young Braves took to the stage, followed by Stolen Comfort, Twisted Species, Of Kings and Captains and Butterfly Stone. The afternoon session saw rockers Reuben Archer’s Personal Sin and an acoustic stage.

Throughout the festival, money has been raised for the Severn Hospice and Alzheimers UK.
