COMMUNITY groups, crafts people and local businesses from across the borough are being invited to take up stalls at two of the town’s biggest annual events.
The Green Fair and Lions Fun Day in June and Morton Stanley Festival in August both provide opportunities for community, craft and business stalls to display their wares for a captive audience.
Each year the two events draw in thousands of visitors and Redditch Borough Council are urging interested parties to come along and show off their goods and services.
John Godwin, Head of Leisure services, 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. We are delighted to once again be able to offer space to local people and are encouraging anyone interested to get in touch to see how they can get involved.”
This year The Green Fair is on June 26 at Arrow Valley Park and Morton Stanley Festival is on August 20-21.
The Green Fair is in partnership with Redditch Lions and will have a host of activities for visitors to get involved in, including live music, pony rides, climbing wall and bumper balls, barn owls, classic cars and motorbikes and rides in a vintage bus. Visitors can also watch local cadets battle it out for the Lions Trophy.
Morton Stanley Festival will once again host a range of live music with a wide variety of acts across the two days. There will be a number of community and craft stalls together with children’s activities. The music field also plays host to numerous festival and food stalls.
