Dateline: 31 May 2011
Pelsall is to host a live music festival for the first time this summer, and it sounds so good we thought Bloxwich music fans should know about it too!
“Pelsall Music Live” takes place on Saturday, 30 July on Pelsall Common and will be a free community event that showcases local talent.
Co–organised by Pelsall Pride Partnership, local musicians and Walsall Council's parks team, festival-goers will be treated to a variety of music.
Visitors to the Electric Pride Marquee will be able to enjoy an eclectic mix of electric rock, pop and indie music from popular local bands, while those in search of a more mellow listening experience will find what they’re looking for in The Vanessa Bridge Acoustic Marquee, where students from local schools feature on the same bill as established professional folk, blues, and country artists
Chair of Pelsall Pride, Councillor Garry Perry, said: “This will be the first event of this kind to be held in Pelsall and I am very much excited at the opportunity of working alongside so many talented musicians with a repertoire to suit many a taste.”
There are a limited number of spaces for anyone who wants to have a stall. A non-refundable charge of £10 is payable in advance for private stallholders. Charities are exempt from charge.
Telephone 07960 503 512 for further details.
