There will be a ‘right royal’ do at Brinton Park, Kidderminster this summer, as Wyre Forest District Council is putting on a party to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
There will be live music featuring songs from West End shows, picnics and all the pomp and circumstance you would expect! Party goers are encouraged to wear red, white and blue, get out their flags and have a birthday party to remember for the Queen’s 90th.
The party, on Sunday 12 June, is just one of a whole host of free events being put on by Wyre Forest District Council this year. The popular Rock and Roll party is back at Stourport Riverside Meadows on Sunday 5 June. Many of the acts have already been confirmed. They include local rockabilly band, The Hayriders, Fireball UK, Debra June and the Rockin Tunes. There will be a Rock & Roll DJ between the acts. The Council is also encouraging classic car owners to drive their vehicles onto the field at the riverside to add to the atmosphere of the event.
The Council has once again been invited by the Ministry of Defence to take part in an Armed Forces Flag Flying ceremony. This year it will take place outside Kidderminster Town Hall on Monday 20 June. Serving and former local servicemen and women will be taking part in the ceremony to remember and support our armed forces.
County and Western fans can enjoy a weekend at Stourport Riverside on 20 and 21 August. The lively event has a great atmosphere and attracts fans from all over the country. Camping will be available.
Weekends in the summer will be filled with music too – as the popular outdoor concerts will return to Brinton Park, Kidderminster, Bewdley’s QEII Gardens and Stourport Riverside. The Council will also be helping to organise the Christmas Lights Switch ons in the towns.
Councillor Sally Chambers, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, well-being and housing said:
“The team has pulled together another fabulous line up of events, with great acts and lots of fun things to do for all the family. The Council is about making positive things happen for the district so come along and join in these fantastic free outdoor community events. We are looking for businesses to sponsor our events and there are opportunities for people to have stalls at the events too. This is a great chance to be part of the events programme and get your business known.”
