The Hook Norton Brewery has a longstanding connection to the Hook Norton Charitable Association, ever since the HNCA was started over 25 years ago. The brewery has been a core supporter of the music festivals over the 18 years and we are pleased and excited to be putting on Music at the Crossroads with our hosts.
Throughout the history of this event there have been changes needed to ensure its survival. The Hook Norton Charitable Association (HNCA), the village charity organisation which runs Music at the Crossroads, has listened to your comments. In response, we have looked at how the festival could be brought closer to the village, how to broaden its appeal, keep pricing reasonable, involve our village groups and bring back some of the spirit of the old Rural Fayre.
As an organising committee and on behalf of our village we again express huge thanks to Nigel Matthews for all the time we have been at Ferris Hill Farm and where the festival has enjoyed some wonderful years.
The fundamental aims remain, to raise money for our village organisations while we enjoy good music and a family-friendly great day out in Hook Norton! So building on the core of the established and well respected music festival we plan to add more! There will be good foods on offer and a range of refreshments including fine ales. Plus there will be children’s entertainment. We invite village groups and organisations to come forward and support our village fundraising event, please contact us!
The success and future of our festival depends on the support of our villagers, and the visitors who come along each year to enjoy the music, so put the dates in your diary, Friday 26th and Saturday 27th June 2015!
For more details and updates on the music line-up we will keep you posted on our website www.hookymusic.co.uk and Facebook page. We will soon have posters up around the village and tickets on sale in our village shops and pubs.
If you would like to offer suggestions or come forward to help you can also contact us via our Facebook page or website (www.hookymusic.co.uk) or send an email to Pete Watkins (firstname.lastname@example.org). Any support you can offer will be appreciated, there’s always something that needs doing, such as stewarding, helping with the set up and clearing away!Hook Norton Charitable Association
