The first ever music festival took place in Boldmere last weekend, with over twenty temporary stalls set up alongside the 95 independent Boldmere traders. Festival-goers were entertained by nineteen professional musicians and performers.
Shoppers enjoyed the atmosphere and community spirit generated by the variety of local stalls and live entertainment, which combined to make it a great occasion for the whole family.
Sutton’s local MP Andrew Mitchell opened the event and presented a laptop donated by the Traders Association to Richard Lord from Lisieux House in Sutton Coldfield – a home for people with learning disabilities.
The music festival was organised by the Boldmere Traders Association to bring together music lovers, community organisations and local residents for a fun-filled Saturday on Boldmere High Street.
Andrew Mitchell said “I would like to thank Martin Pedley and the rest of the Boldmere Traders Association for all the hard work they have done in the run up to this event. I know that Martin and his colleagues have great plans for the future and I look forward very much to future events.”
