A GREAT day was had in Cockermouth last weekend when the town rugby club held a festival at their ground.

Titans Fest, organised by amateur rugby league club Cockermouth Titans RLFC, took place on Saturday, June 29 with over 400 people heading down to Highfield Sports Club in Cockermouth for the much loved annual event.

Suzanne Irving, secretary and treasurer of Cockermouth Titans RLFC, who helped organise the festival said: "It went really well. We anticipated it was going to go well - we sold out our tickets within four days - and what we did was a buy back in the last week. If people bought tickets and they couldn't come because something popped up unexpectedly, people could buy their tickets, because we had a waiting list.

"It's predominantly about raising funds for the club. We are a community club, we are a non-profit making organisation, we run and do everything on sponsorship, volunteers and fundraising, so this is our biggest fundraising day of the year."

There are 60 open age adults signed onto open age rugby and around 130 children who start from age six and go up through the teams.

There are also multiple clubs who use the facilities at the Titans including Cockermouth Football Club, Footloose School of Dancing as well as baby yoga classes and others.

Suzanne said: "The whole event is just about raising funds for running costs because they are phenomenal.

"It's a great atmosphere. At first we were a little bit worried about the rain because it changes the whole vibe of things but this year we had a couple of young bands entertaining people.

"We had Jackson Jane who is about 15 and a young group called the Antics. It was absolutely fantastic to showcase young kids getting into music, it's their sort of taster of that kind of atmosphere, it's just a nice chilled vibe."

Tilia and other town restaurants provided food throughout the day, with The Rucksacks doing one of their final gigs, as well as Scaface and many other entertainers throughout the day.

As well as raising funds for the club, the Titans also carried out a collection for the MND Association which raised £220. Suzanne said: "Obviously it's dear to our hearts because of Rob Burrow and everything with what rugby league has done on that."

The festival is set to continue next year, with Suzanne saying that the event is always a great day for everyone who attends.

Thanks were given to Castleguards Glamping Pods and Tony Harrison butchers for their kind donations.
