Burtonwoodstock weathers the rain for another annual success!


Burtonwoodstock returned at weekend with record numbers in attendance – the fourth year The Club in Burtonwood has organised the event.

The festival was officially opened by Warrington North MP Charlotte Nichols and town Mayor Jean Flaherty at midday, with various acts, stalls and live music lasting until midnight. 

With two different stages, live events ranged from the Liverpool Clan Wallace Pipe Band, to bands such as The Patriots, and an ABBA Tribute to end the night, alongside many more famous local names.

A range of food and drink stalls also added to the festival theme, with choices from woodfired pizzas to fish and chips as well as smaller stalls throughout the day.

The annual festival event was unfortunately cancelled in 2020, like many more, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Despite going ahead in 2021, this year saw the event return in full, with spirits and attendance at a high.

Charlotte Nichols MP for Warrington North shared her support of the event on social media and commented, “Burtonwoodstock is such a brilliant showcase for the village and for our local talent, and draws in so many people from the community and wider area for a day of family-friendly entertainment, and free live music! 

“Although the rain didn’t quite hold off completely, the weather was a huge improvement on last year’s and it was clear from the turnout how needed events like this are for bringing everyone together. 

“I had an absolutely brilliant time and it was great to catch up with so many people, and I’m looking forward to next year’s event already!”

The organiser of the event Paul Wharton said it “was another great day, the fourth time that we’ve done it, with record crowds, fantastic bands, an amazing support team and volunteers. 

“We all do it for the love of the village, and we roll on next year! We can’t wait to do it all again. There’s big plans for next year already!”.
