Summer Of Music At Historic Park

The air will be filled with music at Himley Hall this summer as it launches its annual programme of free band concerts, sponsored by Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.

The Dudley Council-run venue will launch its programme on Sunday 29 May from 2.30 to 5pm when the West Midlands Concert Band performs.

The 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.

The free concert will take place in the charming surroundings on the lawns within the hall’s courtyard and people are encouraged to bring along deckchairs, blankets and picnics to enjoy the afternoon.  Limited seating will be provided.

People will also be able to purchase refreshments from the hall’s tea room, which will be open from 2 to 4.30pm. Cllr Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for planning and economic development, said:

“Concerts at Himley Hall and Park have always proved extremely popular with visitors and I’m sure this year will be no exception. 

"It’s a great opportunity for all the family to enjoy free outdoor entertainment within this beautiful historic setting and it’s fantastic to be supported by Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.”

Other concerts throughout the summer include BJ Concert Band on Sunday June 19, Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass Band on Sunday July 17 and the Black Country Ukulele Band on Sunday August 7.

Concerts will also be taking place at Mary Stevens Park, Stourbridge and Stevens Park, Quarry Bank during the summer months.  For details go to
