It’s become a tradition in Walsall Wood these past few years that on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend – this year that’s Sunday 24th May and Monday 25th May 2015 – there’s a music festival called Walsall Woodstock.
Formerly, it’s been held at the Horse and Jockey pub, but this year it’s expanded to the larger grounds of Walsall Wood Football Club, and looks set to be bigger and better than ever before.
The organisers have this to say on their Facebook page:
**Walsall Woodstock 2015 Announcement**
Hello fellow Woodstockers!!!
We are very excited to announce this year’s Walsall Woodstock will be held on:
Sunday 24th-Monday 25th May (Bank Holiday Weekend)
This year we’ve joined forces with SMS Productions to make Walsall Woodstock bigger and better than it’s ever been before!
Not only are we showcasing some of the best unsigned talent from across the UK, we are also tripling our good causes to help as many vulnerable children as we can in the name of music.
This year, the children’s charities we are proud to be donating all our profits to from Walsall Woodstock 2015 are:
Birmingham Children’s Hospital
Cash For Kids
We would firstly to say thank you to all the loyal support everyone has shown Walsall Woodstock over the years. It has been an exciting journey to watch something grow from nothing, and it’s all down to you generous, music-loving folk.
As many of you are aware 2015 will see a significant change to the format of Walsall Woodstock. The idea is to include more people, more variety of music, more local businesses and most importantly more children’s charities. Changing the venue to Walsall Wood Football Club has presented us with the opportunity to do just that.
To make this a success we need the continuing support from our loyal charitable friends. As our costs of running such an event increase, so does the need to ensure we are able to provide a safe fun-filled environment for our community and the surrounding area. For this reason we have to look at increasing ticket prices.
We have spent much time carefully considering our pricing strategy to continue helping the charities involved whilst not hurting the pockets of our most loyal supporters. As many of you are aware we are doing this for charity. Nobody involved with the production of Walsall Woodstock will EVER make money from our hard efforts.
Day ticket = £10
12-16 = £2 with a full paying adult.
Under 12s are free with a full paying adult.
You can book tickets in advance from here.
We pride ourselves on making a difference using music and community spirit and believe our efforts in bringing over 80 artists together in a family and disability friendly environment are fairly reflected by the price per ticket.
All you need to bring are the smiles. We’ll supply the rest!
