Concerts To Bring Black Country Park To Life

People can enjoy the sounds of an uplifting summer concert in a Quarry Bank park later this month.

Stevens Park will welcome the West Midlands Concert Band to its bandstand on Sunday June 12th from 2:30pm to 5:00pm, as part of Dudley Council’s annual programme of free band concerts, which is this year supported by the Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton.

The West Midlands Concert Band is a volunteer community band, based in Wolverhampton, with musicians of all ages taking part. They will perform songs that people will know and love from classic films as well as marching pieces and classical adaptations.  

People are encouraged to bring along deckchairs, blankets and picnics to enjoy the afternoon. 

Later in June, there will also be another band concert at Himley Hall and Park. BJ Concert Band will perform a feet tapping ensemble of swing music, marches and music from film and stage on Sunday June 19th. 

The concert will take place in the charming surroundings on the lawns within the hall’s courtyard.  People will also be able to purchase refreshments from the hall’s tea room, which will be open from 2:00pm to 4.30pm. Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for planning and economic development, said:

“These concerts provide a wonderful opportunity to not only enjoy a variety of music but to enjoy some of the borough’s beautiful outdoor green spaces.  Plus they are free so are a great way to entertain the whole family on a summer’s afternoon.”

Other concerts throughout the summer at Himley Hall and Park include Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass Band on Sunday July 17th and the Black Country Ukulele Band on Sunday August 7th.
