The free family fun day will celebrate the history of the Black Country. We are working with local Community groups and the event will feature child-centred activities like face-painting, as well trade union stalls explaining what we do.
The event is being headlined by Banner Theatre's First of May Band who offer an eclectic mix of folk, blues, reggae and ska, interspersed with spoken stories drawn from the rich history of the Black Country. The band has interviewed scores of ordinary people who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances, and has turned those stories into songs which reflect the dramatic and moving industrial history of Wednesfield. A host of other local performers is being lined up, providing an entertaining mixture of song, stories, history and the trade union message – all mixed in with lashings of Black Country humour.
Organised by local trade unions as part of our ongoing Unions in the Community campaign.
