Councillor Sally Chambers, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Well-being and Housing said:

“All of this wonderful music is available free of charge. There are well established musicians playing across the Wyre Forest with music to suit everyone’s taste. Get on your dancing shoes in Wyre Forest this summer!”  

The concerts are open to everyone and the beauty of these events is you can pop in for a while or make a whole afternoon of it and bring a picnic!  Visitors are invited to bring their own chair or blanket if they choose. 

All events are brought to you by Wyre Forest District Council. Anyone wishing to support the Council’s programme of free events will have the opportunity to make a donation. Look out for collection buckets at individual events.
