The rescheduled Himley music and comedy festival
The HIMLEY Hall Musicom festival has been rescheduled due to recent changes in the government’s post-lockdown roadmap.
The festival that was supposed to take place in July has been postponed to September 12.
Black Country at Musicom Party in the Park, in association with Harry Jones Company, will feature live music from top tribute bands; Adele de Chloé, UB40 Labor of Love, The Killers Kollective, BRUNO – a tribute to Bruno Mars and Bootleg Abba.
A selection of the best British comedians will also be on stage, along with local groups. Other entertainment includes a huge fun fair, real ale and street food, activities for kids including a huge sandbox and garden games.
Councilor Simon Phipps, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Enterprise at Dudley Council, said: “We are trying to continue our events planned for this summer at Himley Hall and it is unfortunate that the new roadmap guidelines mean that we cannot keep Musicom in July as planned.
“We have emailed everyone who has purchased tickets so far and offered to move them to the new September 12 date or full refund.
“People can still make the most of the entertainment at Himley, with the drive-in cinema returning starting Thursday, June 24th. Like all of our events, it is sure to attend and the public can rest assured that all health and safety guidelines are in place.
“The measures include a 5 square meter space for each car so people can stay coiled in their vehicle or bring loungers and blankets to sit out of their car in the fresh air if they wish.”
The Himley Hall drive-in theater is still on sale for next week, starting with children’s films on Thursday, June 24, and classic romantic comedies on Friday, June 25.
