Open day at Lightwoods House this weekend

Lightwoods House in Bearwood will be open to the public on Black Country Day - Saturday 14 July.

The event, between 11am and 3pm, will include jazz in the bandstand and classic cars on display in front of the house. Visitors can enjoy a guided tour and it’s also a chance to download the park’s new GeoTourist tour, which is available for tablets and smartphones. Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for leisure Councillor Bill Gavan said:

“This is just one of the fantastic events happening at Lightwoods this summer. The house is well worth a visit - the history is fascinating and the way it has been restored is wonderful to see.

“We’re hoping plenty of people will join us for the day and bring along a picnic for a great afternoon in the sun.”

Lightwoods is hosting a performance from the Budapest Ragtime Orchestra on Friday 20 July at 7pm as part of the Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell Jazz Festival.

Also coming up at the park is a play day and big picnic with den building, circus skills, face painting, balloon modelling, sporting activities and more on Wednesday 1 August. Then there is Heritage Week event on 9 September, a wedding fair on 28 October and there’s also a vegan market every second Sunday of the month.
