Performance To Bring Comedy To Life

A Stourbridge park will play host to a pop-up theatre to celebrate the completion of multi-million pound improvement works.

Mary Stevens Park will be transported back in time with free performances of ‘In the Land of Glass and Saucepans’ on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June. The unique short comedy will be held in the tea gardens of the park and follows the story of a two people’s accidental meeting in the Black Country in 1931. 

The free 30-minute comedy which is suitable for adults and children will be performed at 11am, 1.30 and 3pm on both days. Limited seating and cover is available but people are welcome to bring picnics and blankets to enjoy the shows. Cllr Hilary Bills, cabinet member for environmental services, said:

“The free pop-up theatre is a wonderful addition to the parks summer schedule and is a great way for families to enjoy one of our many beautiful green spaces.

"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.”

People are encouraged to book to avoid disappointment by emailing or by calling 01384 815279. Individual and group bookings welcome.

£3.1m of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund has enabled major restoration work to be undertaken including work to the park gates, war memorial, bandstand and Heath pool as well as the creation of a new cafe and toilet facilities.
