Chuckery Festival on this Sunday: A great free live music event in Walsall Arboretum!

Free music and fun on a summer Sunday afternoon – what’s not to love?

Also on today, Sunday 8th July 2018 at Walsall Arboretum Bandstand will be a great live family show – the Chuckery Music Festival 2018 Bandstand Music Event – featuring great local bands and musicians to suit all tastes with food, drink and kids rides also available.

The fun starts at 12 noon and runs right through the afternoon – and the best bit? It’s absolutely free to attend.

There are some great bands on, including one of my favourite local bands – The Martian Social Club – whose heritage lies in the late, great Ron’s Neighbours. Ask your dad.
