HIMLEY Hall’s Musicom festival has been rescheduled due to recent changes in the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

The festival which was due to take place in July has been pushed back to September 12.

Black Country at Musicom Party in the Park, in association with Harry Jones Company will have live music from top tribute bands; Adele by Chloe, UB40 Labour of Love, The Killers Kollective, BRUNO - a tribute to Bruno Mars and Bootleg Abba.

A line up of top UK comedians will also be on stage, together with local bands. Other entertainment includes a huge funfair, real ale and street food, children’s activities including huge sandpit and garden games.

Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise at Dudley Council, said: "We are trying to continue with our events planned this summer at Himley Hall and it is unfortunate that the new roadmap guidelines have meant that we can’t hold Musicom in July as planned.

"We have emailed all of the people who have bought tickets to date and offered to transfer them to the new date of 12 September or a full refund.

"People can still make the most of entertainment at Himley, with the return of the drive-in cinema from next Thursday June 24. Like all of our events, it is safe to attend and audiences can be assured that all health and safety guidelines are in place.

"Measures include a 5 metre square pitch for each car so people can stay tucked up in their vehicle or bring deckchairs and blankets to sit out of their car in the fresh air if they so wish."

Himley Hall drive-in cinema are still on sale for next week starting with kids films on Thursday June 24 and classic rom-coms on Friday June 25.
