The second ever Black Country Festival will take place this month with organisers promising it will be even bigger and better than last year!
Thousands of people enjoyed the first ever Black Country Festival in Dudley last year after local residents and Dudley Council worked to put on entertainment to mark official Black Country Day on July 14.
Events happened all over the borough, with a Black Country themed Stourbridge Carnival, a three day festival of comedy, culture and music at Red House Glass Cone, an all day event on Stone Street Square in Dudley and a performance by the Fizzogs comedy group at Brierley Hill Civic Hall.
The town’s High Street will be decked with market stalls while a children’s fun fair will take centre stage in Market Street and Talbot Street. In the Lower High Street there will be a display of classic cars and a vintage fair which the main stage area will be near to the town clock.
This year’s event promises to be even better with a packed programme of events. The festival will also feature a Black Country Beer Day, a Black Country 10km run and a variety of sports events scheduled on dates throughout July to celebrate Black Country Day which is on July 14.
