The Black Country Festival


Since it’s inception in 2014, the Black Country Festival has grown as a vehicle for bringing the communities of the Black country together.

So although with a heavy heart, it is in that spirit that we have decided to cancel this year’s festival activities to do our bit & help protect the people within our community from COVID-19.

The festival committee team would first & foremost like to thank our Doctors, Nurses & Social Care workers that are leading our community in the fight against this virus. Our decision was made very much in the spirit of asking ourselves “how best can we help and support them?”

Also, we would like to record our huge appreciation to all the organisers of the events that make up the Black Country Festival.
These are the guys that put in hundreds of unpaid hours throughout the year co-ordinating & preparing events, for the love of their communities.
So our decision & indeed for those organisers who have already taken this decision it has been a very difficult one to make.

To those organisers, please know that we will continue to be here for you and will do everything we can to support you.

We hope to mark Black country Day on 14th July with some form of commemorative event not yet finalised.

Thank you Black Country.
