Moseley Festival Update

June 8, 2009

The smashingly lovely David Butlin has provided me with further information about what’s happening as part of the wider Festival antics….

“This year’s Moseley Festival, held in Moseley, Birmingham, is the biggest ever featuring over 80 creative and community events in more than 50 locations over 10 days between 26 June and 5 July 2009.

The annual festival, which has being running for over 30 years, brings together creative and artistic expression from Moseley and surrounding areas, and includes visual arts, live classical, contemporary and electronic music, theatre and dance. In addition there are contributions from many of Mosley’s local businesses, restaurants, galleries and public houses that are hosting special events and offering discounts during the course of the festival.

The busiest Moseley market day of the year, and traditionally the busiest day of the festival, takes place on Saturday 27 June and combines the FARMA award winning Moseley farmers market and a special Moseley Festival street fair featuring arts, crafts and community stalls. As well as the markets on Saturday daytime there will be African drumming, morris dancing, a guided Moseley walk and a ‘flash mob’ event.

Other festival highlights include a workshop celebrating the music of Handel, inducing a concert in one of Moseley’s most attractive churches, St Mary’s; a four-day beer festival at The Prince of Wales pub; an arts trail taking in studios, houses and installations around central Moseley and a drama, dance and music festival at Queensbridge School.

The Cross pub is hosting a cutting-edge social media seminar organised by the Birmingham Bloggers group; The Prince of Wales Pub is holding Rocky Horror Show parties (including live performances); Rich Batsford’s music by candlelight returns to St Mary’s Church; The Patrick Kavanagh hosts evening of burlesque with Scarlet Fever and a live performance by rising star Ella Edmondson; and the Fighting Cocks hosts ‘ginger fest’, an event celebrating the ginger gene.
