Himley parties to the sounds of Ibiza
Himley partied to the sounds of the White Isle today when Ibiza Proms came to the stunning venue.
As temperatures soared crowds were thrilled with classics from The House & Garage Orchestra with special guest vocalists and DJs including local favourite DJ Stuart Ojelay .
The 20-piece orchestra performed a collection of Ibiza Dance anthems, classic hits and contemporary tracks for the ultimate party in the park.
The event was the first part of Dudley Council’s first ever massive Black Country Weekender, part of the Black Country Festival.
The party continues at Himley Hall and Park from noon tomorrow with the return of the popular Musicom event, with its fantastic line up of music and comedy plus family entertainment throughout the day.
Headlining on stage are 80s chart toppers Go West, The Fizz and Roland Gift from the Fine Young Cannibals.
A host of tribute acts include Dua Lipa, Rule the World – Take That tribute, The Elvis Experience while top comedians including Ryan Gough, Duncan Oakley and Susan Murray will be performing in the comedy tent.
There will also be huge funfair, with smaller rides for younger children, street acts and street food from around the world
Councillor Shaun Keasey, cabinet member responsible for commercialism, said:
This has been an incredible start to our first ever Black Country Weekender, with fantastic music from The House & Garage Orchestra, their special guest vocalists and local DJ Stuart Ojelay.
As temperatures soared and the anthems flowed we brought a real taste of Ibiza to our stunning Himley Hall and Park.
I hope people will join us again tomorrow for our fantastic Musicom event, with music, comedy and entertainment for all the family to enjoy.
