Make a date with a fantastic summer line up across Wyre Forest.
Wyre Forest District Council has put together an exciting summer programme with something for everyone.
Rock and Roll enthusiasts and jive dancers are invited to this year’s Rock and Roll Party in the Park on Sunday 31 May.
Enjoy a day of live music at Stourport Riverside Meadows from 11am – 6pm. Local artists such as The Straight Aces, Ellie Scott, Leo Nicks and The Bobcats will be performing along with top DJ Guy Roles from the UK 1950’s Radio Station.
A new event called Celebrate Summer! will take place on Sunday 21 June in Brinton Park, Kidderminster. This is instead of the outdoor cinema event which will return next year.
This year’s live performances will include acclaimed soprano, Elizabeth MacDonald. Sing along with popular prom tunes Rule Britannia and Pomp and Circumstance and many more. Don’t forget to bring your flags and join the fun!
Back by popular demand will be Soul and R&B band ‘Blind Lemon’ who will close the show.
This event is perfect for the whole family with children’s rides, food and trade stalls available throughout the day.
The annual Fly a Flag ceremony will be taking place on Monday 22 June to honour the British Armed Forces. This will take place outside Stourport Royal British Legion from 10am. Come and show your support for our Armed Forces.
Dust off those dancing boots for the Country and Western Festival on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 August at Stourport Riverside Meadows.
There will be live music at this free event and the chance to camp over night. There will also be children’s rides, a fast draw shoot out and trade stalls to browse throughout the day.
Food and refreshments will be available thanks to Brian Murdoch who is sponsoring the Rock and Roll Party in the Park and the Country and Western Festival. Hickman’s of Kidderminster have also kindly donated the use of a stage.
Amy Smith, Wyre Forest District Council’s Leisure Development Officer said:
“These events provide a fantastic free day out in some of the best parks and open spaces within the district bringing the community together to see quality entertainment. Anyone wishing to support the Council’s programme of free events will have the opportunity to make a donation and can do so online.”
