New Family Festival For Solihull
11th June 2016
... Comments

This June, Knowle C. of E. Primary Academy will be launching its inaugural music festival.


A jam packed afternoon and evening of summer entertainment including:

45 piece wind orchestra, brilliant 8 piece live band, Bhangra and Bollywood dancing, local performers and good food, all in one place and designed to suit all the family.

The festival, which is the brainchild of Knowle C of E Primary Academy Parents Association (a registered charity), is designed to bring together the local community and help to raise as much money as possible for all the local primary schools.

Laura Dunne, Chair of the Parents Association and KnowleFest organiser, said, “We all want to support our children’s education as much possible.

“KnowleFest has been established to bring the local community together to have some fun whilst generating as much financial support for the local schools as possible. It has taken a lot of organising, but we’re all incredibly excited and looking forward to what should be a fantastic day of entertainment.


“I’d like to thank all the parents who have been involved and all of our local sponsors, without whom, we probably couldn’t have done any of it. So thanks to Changing Faces Dental Practice, Handelsbanken, Primus Accountants, Quantum Group, The Marketing Pod, and Davies Scothorn.

“Please come and join us; you can expect beats, Bhangra and bouncy castles, barbecue, bar and much, much more besides”. 

KnowleFest  opens on Saturday 18th June at Knowle C. of E. Primary Academy Playing Fields.

Gates open at 2pm, festivities commence at 3pm and will continue until 9pm. Tickets are £5 for children and £15 for adults and are available from  and through Knowle, Dorridge, Bentley Heath, and St George and St Teresa primary schools, Arden Academy and Stepping Stones and can also be purchased at Palmers Fashion and Schoolwear situated on Knowle High Street.

KnowleFest was created by Knowle CofE Primary Academy Parents Association - a registered charity set up and run by parent volunteers to raise funds to support the school.

All profits from the day will go to support Knowle C of E  Primary Academy, with a proportion also supporting the local primary schools – Bentley Heath, Dorridge, St George and St Teresa, Arden Academy and Stepping Stones.

Gates will open at 2pm on Saturday 18th June and will close promptly at 9pm.
