We have a fantastic programme of entertainment planned over the weekend. 

We’ve got celebrity chefs Glynn Purnell and Aktar Islam who will be on the Kitchen Stage cooking up a storm, as well as local restaurants joining the stage to show you how they cook their mouth-watering dishes. 

There’ll be street theatre performances at regular intervals around the festival and there's our ever-popular Music Stage supporting the very best of West Midlands talent including festival favourites Aston Performing Arts and The Glamophones. We will also be welcoming new comers, Lucas D and the Groove Ghetto & Suzi and the Backbeats to the Festival this year.
