This year’s “Wombourne Music Festival“ has booked some new and exciting performers
which we hope you will support and enjoy.
The festival starts with an opening concert on Saturday 21st September when we welcome the “The Military Wives Choir” . These choirs have a national reputation and we hope you take advantage of the opportunity to see one of them when they appear at St Benedict Biscop Church.
Old favourites, which have proved so popular in the past, will continue to take place during the week, including a “Tea & Cake” concert featuring tutors from the “Wombourne School of Music” and , of course, the School Choirs on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday involving pupils from Local Primary and Secondary schools.. For an entrance fee of £3 these school choir concerts have been very well supported and the church has had few seats free on any afternoon.
A new and what we hope will be popular, Friday evening Concert, will feature a local man “Shaun Walker” (aka Shaun Vegas)… Shaun is well known in the area and his concerts have been very well received.
In a recent venture he came 4th in a National Competition “King of Britain”, a competition to find the best “Elvis Presley” impersonator in the UK.
This promises to be a very good concert and details of the songs he will sing will be posted on the website as soon as the programme is finalised. Come along and see “Shaun Vegas as Elvis” on Friday 27th September 7:30pm
From the new back to the old… and we are really pleased to bring back a favourite ensemble to support the “Last Night of the Proms” concert on Saturday 27th Sept.
“Jackfield Brass Band” have attracted a full church on both their visits to Wombourne and we anticipate that tickets will go quickly for this concert, the Final Night of the festival.
