It’s Summer time again, which means it’s Coalfields Festival time!
The multi-stages that hosted music last years are back again at a new venue...Woolley Cricket Club.
This year, Coalfields organisers have decided to take the event home to the old Woolley Colliery and back to its roots.
Coalfields does have its very regular and reliable followers, as well as multi-stages of live music, fairground rides, stalls, hot food and a bar, for which beer tokens are for sale.
Coalfields is a family festival and a place to enjoy a beverage & celebrate a marathon of music in the Sunshine.
