COMMUNITY groups and crafts people are being urged to take up stalls at some of biggest events in Redditch this summer.
Morton Stanley Festival and Scarecrow Day in August both provide opportunities for community and craft stalls to display their wares to a captive audience.
Each year the two events draw in thousands of visitors of all ages and provide a prime opportunity for crafts people to hire a pitch to show off their goods.
What’s more it is free for community and charity groups to attend.
Val Wilson, arts and events officer for Redditch Borough Council, said: “Both of these events are well attended every year and provide an excellent opportunity for groups to make the most of the captive audience. It is the perfect space for craftspeople or groups to bring something interesting and unique to the events. Anyone interested should get in touch to see how they can get involved.”
This year Morton Stanley Festival is on August 20/21 while Scarecrow Day is on August 28 at Forge Mill Needle Museum.
Morton Stanley Festival will once again feature a host of live music plus there will be a number of community and craft stalls together with children’s activities.
The ever popular Scarecrow Day will return with a host of scarecrow characters to be judged by the Mayor of Redditch, Councillor Joe Baker.
There will also be a number of family friendly activities to take part in on the day.
