The High Street has been closed off to vehicles in order to transform it into a venue with stage, stalls and mini fun ground area.
Music plays the centre piece of the event in honour of The Mothers Club which is such a rich part of our local history that had all the big acts of the 60s & 70s perform there. There’s a treat of live music throughout the day with headline act The Pretty Things who are having their 50th anniversary this year.
Building on last years events there will be more stalls and some unexpected surprises – look out for the blacksmith and wood turning activities, part of the contributions from KFC (Kingstanding Food Community) and Forest Schools.
Members of Cafe Arts will be at the event with
- The Cube Collective artists are delivering workshops from a shop unit in Central Square;
- Generations Choir performing in Mothers Cafe Central Square at 2.30 and in the Harbour Coffee Shop in St Barnabas at 3.30;
- Local artist Ev Beard will be displaying work in the Harbour Coffee Shop in St Barnabas
- PEA (The Polish Ex Pats) have lots on with a food stall selling throughout the day, a free exhibition and film screening at 5pm in St Barnabas from the Media Collective Project followed by a free screening of polish film Camera Buff, directed by.
