A popular Country and Western Festival is returning to Stourport Riverside Meadows later this month.
The free event is organised by Wyre Forest District Council in collaboration with Free Spirit Western Dance and Hickmans of Kidderminster and is being held over the weekend of Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 August.
This year’s acts include Amy Morgan, Try Jackson, Paul Taylor and Jonny Holland on Saturday (12pm-8pm). On Sunday the music starts at 11am and includes Billy Curtis, Chris Mezza, and Magill. The event ends with the Trilogy from 6pm.
Other entertainment includes Fast Draw Shoot Out competitions each day at 2pm, face painting and children’s rides. There will also be food and trade stalls.
The Country and Western Festival is a free event, but there will be a small charge for some of the activities. The Council welcomes donations to support present and future events.
Councillor Sally Chambers, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Well-being and Housing said:
“The Country and Western Festival is always a lively event and is ideal for a free family day out. Thre is a lot to do and a wonderful line up of live music. We’d also love to see people turn up dressed for the occasion in Country and Western outfits to make this another great event. “
