Plenty of parties

The jubilee spirit is alive and well in Wyre Forest, with a packed programme of events being lined up to help residents celebrate.

The party gets started at the end of May with a Tea Dance at Kidderminster Town Hall.

The event, being organised by Wyre Forest District Council and local newspaper The Shuttle, is an exclusive afternoon event for couples who have been married for more than 50 years.

Celebrations continue on June 1 with a weekend of music looking back over the last 60 years. More than 30 local bands and DJs will perform on two stages set up at The Boars Head. There will also be an arts exhibition and workshops in The Boars Head Gallery during the weekend.

Wyre Forest District Council is staging a Rock and Roll Party in the Park on June 3 at the Riverside Meadows in Stourport-on-Severn.

A spokesperson for the council said: “Everyone is invited to bring their own picnic and enjoy the party atmosphere. Visitors are invited to dress in red, white and blue to bring the jubilee colours to life.”

The fun will continue in Brinton Park on June 4 with a huge evening of events. This celebration will run from 4.30pm until 10pm and will include performances from local groups such as the Stourport-on-Severn Brass Band and the Got 2 Sing Show Choir.

Members of the public will be invited to join in a sing-along and there will be bouncy castles, face painting, refreshments and a fancy dress competition.

A spokesperson for the council added: “Everyone in the local community is encouraged to celebrate 60 years of the Queen’s reign with a patriotic sing-along, finishing with a firework display at 9.50pm.”
