National Rock and Pop Festival 2019/20

On December 16th 2019 Solihull is taking over 400 pupils to ‘ Rock the Cavern’ Club in Liverpool.


We will be running 3 stages, allocating specific slots to bands which we hope will create a real festival feel.

Parents/audience will need to purchase a festival ticket to access any of the three stages during the day at any time.

We hope that as many people as possible will be able to make the trip to Liverpool but we also understand that it might be difficult to manage around jobs and other commitments, which is why we have decided to hold the festival at a generally ‘quiet time’ to try and make life easier for all concerned, and so that as many people can come and enjoy the Christmas festivities that Liverpool has to offer.

As part of the festival, schools from all over Solihull have been invited to perform across all stages to maximise the impact of the festival.

NEW – Festival Food and Drink (owned by Cavern Tours)  has opened opposite the Cavern Club, and as part of the day have agreed to a 15% discount on all food and drink. (you just have to show your performers wristband or Festival ticket).
