Visitors to the Red House Glass Cone can enjoy music, arts and a craft fayre next weekend.
The annual spring craft market returns to the Wordsley site on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 May. As always there will be the chance to buy and make unique gifts, but this year visitors will also be treated to live music and dancing.
Stalls will be selling an array of hand-crafted items, including jewellery, hand-sewn and knitted items, paintings, woodwork, photographs and decoupage.
Glassmaking demonstrations will run on both days, and for adults and children who like to have a go themselves, various arts and crafts activities are being hosted by some of the cone’s creative tenants. There will be a small charge for each workshop.
On Saturday afternoon from 12- 3pm, artist Luke Perry will be providing street entertainment.
On Saturday evening live music enthusiasts can enjoy acoustic folk-rock-pop music band Journeyman. From 6 – 8pm they will sing and play their unique blend of instruments, ranging from guitar and flute, to mandolin and ukulele.
For the first time, on Sunday, popular Stourbridge morris dancers Bedcote Morris will perform, between 12 – 4pm.
Throughout the open weekend the Red Cone Coffee House will be open for lunch, snacks, freshly ground coffee and hot chocolate.
John Millar, director of the urban environment at Dudley Council, which runs the Red House Glass Cone, said:
“The spring fayre is always hugely popular and this year we’ve expanded the event to include music and dance on top of the ever popular arts and crafts.
“It should prove to be a great day out for families and individuals alike.”
