Pelsall to have a live music festival

Pelsall is to host a live music festival for the first time this summer.

“Pelsall Music Live” takes place on Saturday, July 30 on the Common and will be a free community event that showcases local talent.

Co –organised by Pelsall Pride Partnership, local musicians and Walsall Council parks team, festival goers will be treated to a variety of music.

Visitors to the Electric Pride Marquee will be able to enjoy an eclectic mix of electric rock, pop and indie music from popular local bands, while those in search of a more mellow listening experience will find what they’re looking for in The Vanessa Bridge Acoustic Marquee, where students from local schools feature on the same bill as established professional folk, blues, and country artists

Chair of Pelsall Pride, Coun Garry Perry, said: “This will be the first event of this kind to be held In Pelsall and I am very much excited at the opportunity of working alongside so many talented musicians with a repertoire to suit many a taste.”

There are a limited number of spaces for anyone who want to have a stall. A non-refundable charge of £10 is payable in advance for private stallholders. Charities are exempt from charge.

Telephone 07960 503 512 for further details.

    This is not the first live music festival in Pelsall. Some of us remember the Big Beat Barbeque in the 1960’s. At least one of the musicians who played in it still live in Pelsall.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. That’s interesting – it shows how whenever something is touted as new, it usually isn’t!

      • Garry Perry says:

        New or not, its the first of its kind in decades – lots of people are working hard behind the scenes to make this happen and ensure its success benefits others – particularly the local charities we will be supporting. I like the sound of the Big Beat BBQ, im sorry I did not know of this – but that was 50 years ago, so there are a lot of villagers today who would not have been a part of this.

      • CommonPeople says:

        No one would deny the work it takes and I know there are many people who are already looking forward to it. Events like this are what make Pelsall a wonderful place to live. I wonder how many people in Pelsall have photos from the last event? I’d love to see those!

    What a terrific idea – Pelsall leading the way yet again! Mind you, I hope the acoustic tent will be a reasonable distance from the electric tent, so the former won’t be drowned out by the latter!
