Wow, what a cracking weekend we all had at the Colne Engaine Festival! The weather was just awesome, the Colne Engaine Festival Committee had pulled out all the stops to make the occasion a huge success.
The programme of events included air shows, dancing from Elizabeth School of Dance, dog agility, live music, quiz night, donkey rides, bucking bronco, stalls with stunning local handicraft and of course the Five Bells Bar & BBQ!
Temperatures soared into the late 20’s, bringing people flocking to festival in their hundreds!
The BBQ was quite literally on fire, it seemed that everyone was in need of a good old sausage or burger, that’s not to mention the buzz at the bar, glasses of Pimms were being ordered, quicker than the bar staff could make them, and with Visor on tap at a special festival price the bar was a necessity as a serious thirst quencher.
The festival always creates such an amazing sense of community and brings so many people together, many people are fund raising too & it’s just the perfect way to kick back and relax for the weekend. It brings young and old together as well as old friends that have moved away but come back to reunite!
Welcome to the Five Bells blog! Along with our Facebook & Twitter groups, we thought it was about time that we started a blog too, and we hope that you will follow us! The Five Bells is in the beautiful village of Colne Engaine, overlooking the stunning Colne Valley! The pub offers an amazing selection of Real Ales, along with a fantastic wine collection and outstanding home cooked food!

This weekend has just seen the hugely successful Colne Engaine Festival, this saw a huge array of entertainment, along with the bar and BBQ run by the pub. It's a real community event with so many people chipping in to help and making the event a massive success!

Now the excitement of the festival is over, we're on the slippery slope to the start of the World Cup, with our first match on Saturday evening! We have 2 large screens in the Five Bells, so please come along and soak up the awesome atmosphere with us!
