Following on from the phenomenal success of last year’s event, where bumper numbers attended, the event organisers’ are hopeful that this year will be prove to be an even greater success because like the rest of the UK we are celebrating the wonderful year of the Jubilee and Olympics on Sunday 16th September 1pm-4pm 2012 at Weoley Castle Square’s public open space.

The event will be opened by local resident of the Weoley ward, Dame Julie Moore CEO of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Lord Mayor Cllr. John Lines will be attending.

Dame Julie has been in the company of the Queen twice this year. She took the helm of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust in 2006, and received her Dame Hood for her services to healthcare. Her Majesty the Queen officially named the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham during her Diamond Jubilee Tour, accompanied by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, they were welcomed by Dame Julie and her team.

On the starting block is a programme of family entertainment including singers, line dancers, belly dancers, fire eaters, circus acts, majorettes, arts workshops, face painting, sports, dance & history activities along with police and fire displays, rides, bouncy castle, catering and refreshments.
It promises to be an exciting, sparkling afternoon packed with family friendly activities and entertainment that make for a perfect day, this fun packed extravaganza will be a winner for all.

Organisers of the Jubilee event have plans well in hand for an award winning festival which is a celebration of local life and community and an opportunity for everyone to join together.

The Weoley Festival committee is a not for profit organisation of local volunteers established to co-ordinate, manage and develop a guaranteed festival of fun.

The festival was revitalised to bring back community spirit and last year it was attended by over 1000 people. The event now acts as a focus for the local community and charitable groups.

The committee is pleased to acknowledge funding from the city council Community Chest and Awards for All in addition to the support pledged by local businesses, which will help to ensure the success of the previous year, is continued.

If you or your group would like to take part by hiring a stall, donating a prize for the raffle, displaying a poster or volunteering on the day please get in touch with Audrey Stables 0121 475 6308 or Carole or Leanne 0121 459 6963 or email office@swbca.org.uk
