THE rain did not dampen spirits at Halesowen pub as customers enjoyed a joint beer and music festival.

Halesowen College bands, including Meff and The Jimmy Hendrix Experience, performed at the Cobham Arms, Howley Grange Road, on Saturday.

Bar staff dressed in fancy dress and the pub served beer from around the country.

Ian Prosser, whose son is the drummer for Meff, said: "It was a great day with some top live music by the bands which performed at the Cobham Arms."
