More music…

Plenty of folk on bikes today, which was good to see

The Arboretum Bandstand is a great venue, in one of Walsall’s most beautiful spots.

This Sunday 21st July 2013, the Chuckery Festival finishes in spectacular style. From 12pm to 6pm, there will be another afternoon of great live music at the Bandstand in Walsall Arboretum, and what’s more, it’s free.

This follows on from the spectacular success of last week’s ‘Our Big Gig’ event, which set people talking across local social media all week.

The running order is as follows (Thanks to Colin Walker and Nick Coyne on Facebook):

The times of who is on, and when at the Chuckery Festival at the Bandstand, Walsall Arboretum, Sunday 21st July 2013 –

The festival organisers have this to say about the music:

Music Festival on Sunday 21st July at the Bandstand in Walsall Arboretum

Starting at 12:00 (noon) until 6:00pm and featuring the ‘Roots’ reggae band Gabbidon promoting their new album and featuring the Steel Pulse founder Basil Gabbidon.

You can also hear Walsall Jazz Orchestra, Grey Goose Blues Band  with original songs in a contemporary blues style and then Fat Lip playing funk, soul and blues, plus others…

Walsall is really beginning to develop a reputation for great live music events, particularly in the Arboretum. I had a great time last week at the Our Big Gig event, and recommend anyone who fancies a great afternoon out pops along this Sunday.

I haven’t managed to get to any of the events, but apparently the Chuckery Festival has been a great success!
