The Railway Inn’s Harry Parker is inviting members of the community to celebrate a special occasion at the venue featuring live music and entertainment all day on Sunday 29 October 2017. The ‘Birthday and Handover Party’ is set to celebrate Harry taking control of operations at the pub as well as his Dad’s birthday.
With Roger and Heather Parker deciding to take a back seat in the business Harry is looking forward to celebrating his new challenge with a big party. The celebrations will also represent a nod to 50 years of the Parker family running local pubs:
“My Grandad used to run the ‘Brickies’ and so did my Dad,” says Harry.
“Then there’s my Grandma who used to run the Saracens Head and they’ve all run various pubs around the West Midlands.”
There’s plenty to enjoy at Sunday’s event:
“We’ve got a good day lined up” explains Harry.
“We’ve got the football showing early on, then the Party starts at 2 O’Clock. At 3 pm we’ve got Soul Matters who will be playing out the front. We’ve also got a really good duo playing from 5 until 7 pm. Then there’s Mark the DJ who will be filling the gaps and then he’ll take us through to the finish.”
Soul Matters features some fine young singers and musicians from the West Midlands and will be well worth a look.
