MORTON Stanley Park will be hosting another free festival next month, taking in Redditch’s 95-acre park.
On August 19 and 20 the event, organised by Redditch Borough Council, is open to the whole community and the lineup has just been announced.
Beginning at 1pm each day exciting acts including main stage headliners Big Wolf Band, reggae artist Jeremiah Ferrari, and Bewdley’s Arcadia Roots, will take to the stage to entertain the crowds with their different musical styles.
Featuring 37 local acts across two days and two stages, the festival will also invite Zoe Green Band, Pig-Man and the Rubber Band, and the Emma Jonson Quartet to complete the headline acts.
Festival stalls, classic street food and drink, rides and Saturday’s firework finale will all feature at the family friendly festival.
Expanding from last year, the festival promises to be bigger and better with a new acoustic tent and a featured DJ tent by Locked In Radio that will broaden the range of music on offer.
Councillor Pat Witherspoon, Redditch Borough Council’s portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “This year’s festival is bound to go with a bang – and not only because of the new fireworks display. There’s always entertainment for everyone at Morton Stanley, from the Saturday night bands to the family and community events that bring people together during the day.”
